Like our compostable products, our food scrap collection programs positively impact the climate crisis because they are designed to decrease plastic consumption, divert food from landfills, and repurpose food scraps for compost. Food in landfills emits methane emissions, a greenhouse gas that is 28 times more harmful than carbon dioxide. By implementing our programs, you can increase the amount of compost available to your community. Our programs easily educate waste generators to separate food scraps from trash and recyclables, helping composters get the feedstock required to create more compost.

Additionally, many cities are accelerating bans that prohibit the disposal of food scraps to landfills. As the world moves to address the challenges associated with the climate crisis striving to become carbon-neutral, implementing food scrap collection programs and moving away from traditional plastic products can help build a healthy soil foundation and create a cleaner environment for all.
