Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Dan Blake, the co-founder and chief executive officer of EcoScraps is turning food waste into a profitable compost business.
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?
In late 2010, business student Dan Blake was at an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant when it occurred to him that an unbelievable amount of the restaurant’s food was ending up in the garbage.
