About Yale GreenLight

GreenLight hosts a series of ideation workshops with leaders of organizations at the intersection of business and the environment. Ideation workshops are highly interactive, fast-paced sessions designed to generate new and innovative solutions to complex challenges. They are used by some of the world’s most celebrated design and innovation consultancies and are a popular component of the Yale School of Management core curriculum.


Pluvr is a vertically integrated organic waste management company with two distinct lines of business:

  1. an organic waste hauling service
  2. organic fertilizer products

Pluvr collects food residuals and coffee grounds from restaurants and transports that organic waste to its facilities where it is upcycled into organic fertilizer using state-of-the-art processing systems. The end product is known as vermicompost, or earthworm castings, a high-quality organic fertilizer, or ‘soil amendment’, with market fit in organic agriculture, cannabis cultivation, and the home gardening segment.  Pluvr’s mission is to provide restaurants with the cleanest and easiest food waste removal service and to supply soil-based growers with the most effective and natural fertilizer product.

Pluvr is passionate about repurposing ‘waste’ and crafting it into a tip-top organic fertilizer, reducing landfill pollution and creating healthier soils for tomorrow’s growers. We believe that creating a vibrant for-profit business at the crossroad of waste reduction and soil creation can form the perfect force for environmental stewardship to meet the challenge of feeding soils to sustain the increasing human population and declining natural resources.
