Why we care: Composting prevents methane (a potent greenhouse gas) from being released to the atmosphere by diverting food waste from going to the landfill and instead turning this food waste into nutrient rich soil. This healthy soil can then replenish eroded farmlands and regenerate the land.
Non-Profit Partner: Soil Cycle
Soil Cycle is a organization on a mission to reduce food waste and carbon emissions through offering environmentally sustainable composting services and education. They are bicycle powered; picking up compost on bikes and promoting sustainability through direct communication with the community as they travel through neighborhoods.
Why we care: Regenerative farming is the most sustainable type of farming because it replenishes viable nutrients back into the soil so that it remains healthy for generations to come.
Non-Profit Partner: White Buffalo Land Trust
