Inspired by Nature


Sometimes the most cost effective and simple solutions to complex problems are those that are right in front of us. Through millions of years of evolution, natural processes have created ingenious ways of solving problems. For example, maggots when introduced to the right environments can consume 70% of it's own body weigh in human waste every day. For every kilogram of waste, it produces 50g of protein that can be used to replace traditional, resource-heavy feed sources for chickens. The best part of implementing maggots for waste disposal is how hands-off it is. Because it is a naturally occurring process, there is not complicated technology or specialized information that needs to be distributed. It's plug and play.
