Ladro is passionate about sustainability and has a zero organic waste policy. We recycle all our food waste from chicken stock bones and carrot tops, to uneaten pizza crusts [who are you who leaves the best bit?].
With two large Closed Loop bio-composters located in Fitzroy and Prahran, we turn all our organic waste into usable garden fertiliser, therefore eliminating all our food waste from being dumped into landfill.
WANT SOME COMPOST FERTILISER?
Customers can buy a bag [$2] or bucket [$5] anytime when when visiting Ladro or when ordering takeaway via Foodora.
BYO your own bucket and we will fill it up for you. Are you’re involved in a NFP community garden, school or organisation, or know an organisation needing compost, take as much as you like. We’re all about closing the loop at Ladro and giving back to the community. We no longer contribute useless organic waste to landfill. Instead, our waste is turned into useful compost fertiliser to make gardens grow food full of nutrients. Good for us, good for you, awesome for the planet.
Are you a local farmer? We would love to chat about exchanging compost for produce. We can give you cubic meters for goods we can use in the kitchen, herbs, vegetables, or anything you might have growing in your garden. Lets chat.

– Regular waste audits for all our waste products
