Its new office at 1001 W. 18th St., Houston, offers 1,500 square feet and allows office and operations to share one space.
“Although we started our company during the pandemic last year, we are very encouraged by the reception of Houstonians to incorporating composting into their daily routines,” Moonshot co-President Joe Villa said in a news release. “Our new, centrally located headquarters will enable us to work more efficiently and provide the best possible service to our current and future clientele.”
Founded by brothers-in-law Chris Wood and Villa, Moonshot focuses on food waste diversion, expanding from single- and multifamily residential to commercial clients, including ConocoPhillips, Henderson & Kane, Ostia Restaurant, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Rice University, Houston Baptist University, St. John’s School and Annunciation Orthodox School.
“Landfills consist of up to 40 percent food waste, which release unhealthy levels of methane into the air,” said Wood, who has been certified in zero-waste business practices. “Composting provides the option to keep food out of the trash and eventually back into the earth, which is where we come in. After we collect the food waste in special bins, it goes to a composting facility and ultimately is returned to the client or to a community garden to help grow healthy plants or vegetables.”
