Journey with us and live Lightr
At 5th Place we are not only about making our inner world a better place we also see a space to make our outer world better too.
We live on the earth, eat from the earth, we breathe its air and drink its water. The earth can survive without us, we cannot survive without the earth.
Finding a way to tread lighter on the earth, to consume less, waste less, eat local, drink clean, breathe fresh, and at the same time to replenish what has been removed can be quite easy. It is not necessary to change the world in one day, all you need to do is make small changes, take small steps, consistently.
Join us us as we share our journey in living with Lightr Feet.
Garden waste management
It is estimated that garden waste can account for 20% to 50% of the total municipal solid waste generated in urban areas.
Lightr Feet offers a custom designed on-site management of garden waste through a composting programme that offers a number of opportunities, including cost saving, waste reduction and education.
The composting system is a modular turn-key system with all necessary elements and supportive implements supplied. The design of the composting system is tailored to suit each client's needs and is aimed at being user-friendly and efficient.
Initial staff training is provided from the outset, when the system is installed and configured. Thereafter training, oversight and ongoing guidance is provided.
Food waste management
Roughly one-third of all food produced for human consumption, goes to waste each year with an economic cost of approximately $1 trillion annually.
Lightr Feet offers a custom designed bespoke food waste management programme using the data provided from your organisation or household based on the food that is consumed and discarded.
An interactive presentation called The hidden costs of food waste drives home the reasons for embarking on such a programme.
Ongoing support and encouragement is provided at regular intervals through email reminders and online educational articles.
