Did you know that each year Americans throw away more than 30 million tons of food waste and that this waste accounts for nearly a quarter of all landfill waste?
Today I learned about a company that is trying to profit from this trend.
EcoScraps makes organic compost from food waste that they collect for free.
EcoScraps collects food waste, which would otherwise be thrown away, and through a completely organic process turns it into high quality soil conditioner.
According to the company, “this soil conditioner has the same nutrient values as chemical based soil amendments while being organic. Our products are composed of ingredients selected and combined in scientifically determined proportions to produce ideal nutrient and organic content to the soil.”
