Green Business: Compost
Cut your waste by 1/3 with composting. Organic materials make up at least 30% of the garbage in our landfills. This is a huge source of valuable nutrients that is simply being wasted. All that compost requires is space and time.
- Set up a large bin at your home if there isn’t room at your office. Collect fruit and vegetable scraps, tea bags, coffee grounds, etc in a smaller container that you empty once a week.
- If you have a high volume of food, consider investing in a larger, on-sight composting system.
- Partner with a local farm that may want your raw materials, or look into the various commercial compost companies that may want your raw materials. Ecoscraps is one example.
- While it may not make financial sense to invest in a composting system or storage by yourself, by teaming up with other restaurants, businesses, and resorts around you, you can pool your resources and increase the draw for a commercial service.
- Encourage your local government to create municipal composting.
