Worm Return is a female-owned, socially responsible organic waste diversion company. Our goal is to keep food waste out of landfills and create a high-nutrient soil amendment in the process. Founded in 2018 by life-long environmentalist, Laura Totin Codori, Worm Return has diverted 64,563 pounds of organic waste since March 2018. Our goal is to educate the public that Organic Waste + Landfills = Greenhouse Gases! When organic waste ends up in a landfill, it is a commonly believed that the waste will decompose and not take up space in the landfill. What people don't realize, including myself up until a few years ago that yes, the waste does disappear. But we need to remember that little piece of high school science that taught us matter cannot be created or destroyed. When the food waste decomposes in a landfill without the presence of oxygen, the food wate "disappears" into methane gas - a colorless and odorless gas up to 48 times more powerful than carbon dioxide.
We can provide: waste management for businesses, interactive seminars at schools and events, or consulting on waste solutions for restaurants, home owners, garden groups, urban farms, and many more.
