Monorom Tchaw is a believer of more recognition, empathy and gratitude towards the people, resources and laws of the universe that enable our existence on this planet.
She accidentally founded Compost City after the project won the Impact Hub Phnom Penh’s 2019 SmartSpark competition focused on environmental solutions and got seed funding to grow the initiative.
Today, Compost City sells a ready-made balcony composting system, partly as a concrete tool for urban households to take care of their own kitchen waste, and mostly as an excuse to make people reconnect and fall in love with soil and life.
Monorom has been living in Cambodia for over 6 years. She was born and raised in France and her parents are from Cambodia. She gets excited about sharing and tasting any homemade food, cycling, soil life, Non-Violent Communication and learning about other people’s quirks and values.
