Compost Baladi

Compost Baladi SAL is a Lebanese Social Enterprise specialized in bio-waste management at different scales. Compost Baladi’s products resort to low tech, low cost and locally manufactured waste management solutions; aligning with a sustainable circular economy approach.

Among the different lines of services that they provide, they also raise awareness on agricultural topics and on the importance of sorting at source and composting to citizens, students, farmers and underprivileged communities. To date, Compost Baladi has empowered and achieved several national success stories in waste management, waste valorization and wastewater treatment at different scales.

Compost Baladi started as a blog in 2015, following the start of the national waste management crisis. Its creators used the blog to raise awareness and incentivize people on composting. Seeing the large interest from people, Compost Baladi was thus established as a social enterprise in 2017.

Compost Baladi has already manufactured and put on the market an in-vessel composter that empowers users living in a rural or urban area to manage their organic waste at home and gain compost out of it. Therefore, having worked on similar innovations targeting organic waste management on a household level like the EarthCube, they wanted to take it to a bigger scale and serve the whole community; especially the ones who couldn’t or didn’t want to purchase a whole EarthCube.
