Composting Made Easy

Divert your food and plant based waste from the landfill so your waste becomes soil, not methane. Our easy, clean and affordable bucket swap system makes composting a breeze.

How It Works

Sign up

Membership is $16/month and includes a drop off every other week. Cancel anytime.


Every other Tuesday, members drop off full Green Boxes at Green Life Trading Co. in exchange for a clean one.


Every swap day, enjoy 10% off your entire order at Green Life Trading Co.


If it grows, it goes!

  • Fruits, Veggies, Nuts (including pits/seeds)

  • Meat (including skins and bones)
  • Bread, Pastries, Pasta, Rice, Other Grains

  • Compostable Containers/Flatware/Bags with BPI - ASTM D6400 or TUV OK compost HOME certification

When in doubt, throw it out!

  • Plastic, Metal
  • Liquids, excessive oils/fats
  • Pet Droppings
  • Produce stickers/Twist Ties

Congrats! Visit us in store and show your confirmation email from Green Box to a Sales Associates. They will give you your first Green Box and send you on your way to composting with ease. 

Unfortunately, no. If you cannot make it to our store for the designated drop off window from 11am to 6pm, this program will not be the right fit for you.

To skip weeks with this membership you will cancel service on the Green Box website and restart service once you are ready to start again. If you cancel service, you will need to return your Green Box to Green Life Trading Co.

You are welcome to sign up at any time to begin service. Make today that day!
