Arla-employees bring their garbage home from work

At Arla head office in Stockholm a new compost machine is turning food waste from the canteen and coffee grounds from coffee machines into nutrients for plants.

The compost from the new machine is put into small compost goody bag (Photo) which are shared among colleagues and the office’s plant supplier. It is stated that just one teaspoon of compost mixed with water is a delicious meal for plants – so the goody bags last a long time.

The story about the Swedish reuse initiative is shared on Arla Foods LinkedIn profile, where facility manager Niklas Henningsohn gets the credit for implementing the machine – ‘and making everyday habits at the office that bit greener’.
