The Positively Green Podcast

Aug 30, 2021

The woes of composting your food waste are many. From the odor to messiness, trying to compost at home can be extremely challenging, especially if you don't have composting service or a backyard to finish your compost. That's why we had Jeremy Lang, the founder of Pela and Lomi, on the Positively Green Podcast. In this episode, we learn all about Lomi - the countertop composter that turns your food waste into compost in a matter of hours. No mess and no smell - just finished compost at the push of a button!

Jeremy Lang is the Founder and Vice President of Sustainability at Pela. Pela is best known for their biodegradable phone cases and more recently, their countertop composter - Lomi. Pela makes everyday products without everyday waste that educate and inspire a global community of people who are committed to making a positive impact on our planet. As a Certified B Corporation, Climate Neutral Certified, and a member of 1% For The Planet, Pela is on a mission to eliminate 1 billion pounds of waste from the global waste stream and continues to research and develop the most innovative products to create a waste-free future.
