Making an impact has never been easier.

The Econopian Food Waste Composting Ecosystem


3 Years, 3 Divisions, 1 Focus..

.. Divert food waste from landfilling.

In 2015 Econopia was organized to focus efforts around creating products and services aimed at innovating how to better steward food waste. In 2016 GoZERO Food Waste Courier Services was organized in order to address the logistical problem of collecting food waste separately from traditional waste, and in 2017 Fork@Farm Food Waste Composts was created to make it possible to deliver premium food waste compost directly to you door so that everyone can participate in better stewarding food waste.



What's different about Econopia’s approach?


Econopia’s singular focus is innovating resource stewardship – starting with food waste, diverting it from landfilling, and working to make it easy for mid to small scale food waste generators do their part.

(Economic & Ecological)

Econopia is committed to building a for-profit business from the ground up in order to best ensure the longevity and expansion of the environmental, community, and economic benefits created through its products and services.

Holistic Integration

Econopia’s approach is vertically integrated, meaning it’s focused on developing capabilities across each step of the food waste recycling and recovery process (i.e. collections, composting, and marketing of resulting products). Doing so makes it less likely quality and operations will be diminished due to uncontrollable third-party issues.


Integration across multiple food waste composting steps creates complexity which requires operations stay small and local. This limitation has been used to create a more service oriented and quickly reproducible operation in order to best meet needs as they arise.


As the need for food waste collections routes, neighborhood composting hubs, and compost marketing grow – Econopia is poised to share those opportunities with anyone who would like to participate, building a platform for food waste composting based on lessons learned from companies like Uber and Airbnb.


Econopia has created a nonprofit food waste collections service, GoZERO, and offers the Buy 1 Give 1 program in order to provide food waste collections and premium compost to nonprofit and community groups for free.




3 ways you can be a part of innovating food waste compost stewardship.

1. Tell your friends Econopia is where it’s at!

Follow, share, and like our Econopia, GoZERO, and Fork2Farm pages on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pintrest, Linkedin, and others.

If you’re hard core, snap a picture of your green thumbs with some friends and #econopia.

If you’re true believer, tell a friend in person or on the phone about Econopia.

2. Buy a bag of Econopia’s Fork to Farm Food Waste Compost. 

As part of Econopia’s commitment to make food waste composting easy you can now have a 5 pound bag of Econopia’s Fork to Farm Food Waste Compost delivered right to your door. Use it as an all organic pro-biotic enriched moister enhancing fertilizer for your garden and flower boxes.

And now when you buy a 5 pound bag, not only will we use the revenues to grow food waste composting, we’ll give 5 pounds to a local nonprofit or community organization.

Order online today, and get some for your friends.

3. Sign up for GoZERO Food Waste Courier Services.

Commercial services are now available in the Columbus, Dayton, and Cincinnati areas. Tell your favorite restaurants, food stores, and distributors how much more you’d love them if they’d compost with Econopia.

If you’re the vigilante type, let us know you’d personally like to compost. We’re working on getting community collection hubs started for people who’d like to compost their kitchen scraps but might not need one of our 65 gallon containers. The hubs would be staffed a couple times per week so you and your other hip neighbors can combine your food waste while encouraging your other (less hip)neighbors to do the same.
