Our innovative digital waste recording Solution

Innovation Through Desire

by Colin Higgs/17th-October-2020

Why did Greenkode create this device?

The main reason? It did not exist.

Currently, as far as we know, this is the only sensing device for cellular communication for relaying weight data. Lorawan, the low energy communication network has one for only upto measuring 30kg and costs over £500 per unit and is not cellular end to end . The idea is to mass produce them as cheaply as possible. (We are still looking for manufacturers.) We fundamentally innovated a new product to make a difference.

We all want to make a difference to our future environment. Greenkode elected to help by creating a device that measures and monitors food waste, in turn stimulating behavioural change. At Greenkode, we know, individually we all have the ability to create small positive ‘changes’ that can help to resolve some of our largest, most pressing issues so we created this device to enable you to contribute by reducing food waste. 

We hope others will emerge and join us and use the pandemic ‘down’ time to create more positive environmental changes.

The consensus of opinion:

Globally it is estimated that one-third of the food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted–this is equivalent to about 1.3 billion tonnes per year. 


  Food waste is responsible for 6% of global greenhouse gas emissions. 


We only have 60 Years of Farming Left If Soil Degradation Continues. 


There will be no fresh water by 2040 if we keep doing what we’re doing today. 


We have 12 years to to stop climate change from impacting throughout the World.


These are quantified facts we can ignore or choose to change. We are at the precipice of making ourselves bare unnecessary loss of human life and struggle due to our way of existence. 

Fortunately, the UK investment Landscape is changing. We have started to invest in companies (more than one-fifth), organisations and communities that will make a difference to how we impact the Earth. We need to do this before we all receive the ‘fruits’ of our practises that we have sown for the last 100 years.
