Much of the philosophy of Roots Composting is based on the concept of "Balance." Just as the creation of a successful compost pile requires A careful balance of carbon and nitrogen, moisture and oxygen, the creation of a business like Roots requires several types of balance.
We strive to balance business with community connection - Roots is deeply embedded in the Flagstaff community and strives to work closely with community partners to ensure that our actions support both economic development and soil development, food production and job creation.
We strive to balance economics with sustainability - Roots actively
integrates economic practices with sustainability practices, bringing
these all too often separate spheres together into one.
We strive to balance local with global - Roots combines global best-
practices for industrial-scale composting with locally researched methods designed to fit both the environmental, social, and economic factors of
the Flagstaff area.
