Mission
BK ROT is a non-profit youth operated composting service based in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We facilitate community composting through the creation of positive environmental jobs for low-income, youth of color.

BK ROT works at the intersections of social and environmental injustices that have a compound impact on local youth in Bushwick and the health of our larger community and ecosystem. We believe fighting climate change and environmental destruction must be community-led, actively working against systemic oppressions that create injustice and must center and be empowering to those most affected by these crises. We are demonstrating solutions that create opportunities for youth to engage meaningfully in the larger environmental justice movement while working to improve our community’s ecological practices.
