Local family of 5 launches Houston’s 1st curbside composting service

Where's Maggie

HOUSTON – Jesse and Melissa Stowers have their hands full with three children aged 9, 6, and 4. They also have their hands full with a lot of garbage.

After seeing the trash bags pile up, especially during quarantine, the couple decided to up their composting. That’s when they realized that Houston did not have a curbside composting service. So, Jesse started distributing and collecting compost buckets for free.

As more people became interested in their neighborhood the Stowers officially made it a business and launched Happy Earth.

CW39 Houston’s Maggie Flecknoe caught up with the Stowers and saw how easy they make composting.
