As Ecorich, we promote environmental sustainability and community health by providing convenient recycling processors in populated urban neighborhoods. We give households a chance to generate value from their waste by generating organic fertilizers from the waste and giving it to farmers.Video Clip of Device!
We first give the waste processor bins to the households
All the kitchen waste is put into the processor bins throughout the week
As the kitchen waste is put into the processor, the processor frments it using micro-organisms
By end week, we collect th waste as organic fertilizer to give to farmers
We have developed a waste food processor that decomposes food waste into organic fertilizer reducing the number of dumpsites that causes numerous release of toxic gases to the atmosphere eg Methane which is the primary contributor to the formation of ground-level ozone, a hazardous air pollutant and greenhouse gas, exposure to which causes over 500,000 premature deaths every year.
We have now reduced urban waste by 40% by collecting kitchen waste from the households we are working with
Household waste ends up been burnt and carbon added to the air. We are reducing this one household at a time.
Supplying organic fertilizers to farmers reduces the use of inorganic farm chemicals that produce carbon to the air
We have established proper waste removal which helps improve air and water quality as well as reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
For the first time in Kenya Homesteads can now turn their kitchen waste into a useful product.
By giving organic fertilizers at a cheaper price, it has grown their farm produce by 25%
Reducing the number of dumpsites reduces the spread of diseases such as malaria & cholera
Giving the organic fertilizers to farmers directly increases soil fertility and reduces their losses in their farms
After I started using EcoRich fertilizer, I have doubled my income from my crop harvest in 2022
Since I started using the waste decomposer in my kitchen, the smell from food waste has been completely eliminated.
With this hiked prices of fertilizer, Ecorich fertilizer is very affordable, it saves me some coins.
I can see difference in my neighborhood, the dirty and smelly trenches are now clean and dry
