This is shipped from Subpod’s USA factory to you, the conscious consumer. Most everything that this product is shipped with can be the start of your carbon pile for your NEW composting.
Subpod works like a little compost factory. Your compost worms, and the beneficial microbes that live alongside them, are the workers! They take food scraps and carbon items (like paper, leaves and coconut peat) and turn it all into rich compost that builds soil and helps plants thrive.
Being underground, Subpod creates a natural environment for compost worms. Having access to the soil means they can feed and breed as rapidly as they like, because there’s always room for their population to grow. Soil is an insulator, and in hot weather, compost worms will instinctively escape into soil to cool down. As the weather turns cold, it will keep your worms warm and active during winter (as long as the soil doesn’t freeze). Every time your worms leave Subpod, their movement aerates your garden soil and increases its nutrient content.
Subpod is an aerobic system, which means it promotes odourless microbes to boost the composting process, not smelly anaerobic ones. The unique 360 ventilation below Subpods’ lid keeps fresh air cycling through your system and, with weekly aeration, your compost will only ever smell like a forest floor.

Where It Comes From:
SUBPOD teamed up with compost worms and microbes to create rich soil and grow organic food. Subpod is the compost system that’s different. Completely pest free and odourless thanks to its careful design, composting has never been this easy. Worms and microbes live inside Subpod, travel out and spread rich nutrients into your garden, then return home to compost your waste. Taking care of your waste is as simple as opening a lid, stirring your scraps in and taking a seat. All the hard work is done by the worms below you. Subpod is attractive, but also subtle – easily hidden by bushy plants and thriving vegetables, so you can focus on keeping your garden gorgeous. You don’t have to compromise on beauty in your garden, compost with Subpod.
