Did you know that 40% of the food produced get wasted in the United States? That is enough to fill the Rose Bowl every day. The food waste sits in landfills producing methane, which is 20 times more harmful than CO2! The founders of EcoScraps came with an ingenious solution to this problem by converting food scraps collected from stores and restaurants into organic and sustainable garden products. The picture below shows how their process works.

With the mission to "grow gardens, not landfills", EcoScraps recycled 75 million lbs of food waste between 2011 and 2015. They aim to match that number in 2016 with projected recycling of another 75 million lbs of food waste -- this time in just 12 months. You may want to know that recycling 15 million lbs of food waste is equivalent to keeping 500,000 cars off the road for an entire day!

When time and space permit, organic gardening can be the most fun part of green living. Not only will you be able to experience the great joy of harvesting, but you will also be eating healthier and safer food. EcoScraps offers a wide variety of garden products including soils, plant food and liquid fertilizer, which makes it easy to start your own organic garden from scratch.
