Harini Aiyer

Harini is a scientist, educator, and a community organizer. She started composting in her apartment by taking her source separated organics to a community composting pile. Since then she has been a board member of a local non-profit that manages community composting sites and promotes soil creation. Frustrated with the lack of tools for people to more conveniently reduce food waste in the landfill, she teamed up with Allison C and John M, her co-founders, to create Compost Connect, an online platform that connects urban residents with local compost haulers to promote food waste diversion.
