Hi, hello! Welcome to my first official blog post. While you are getting comfy, let me introduce myself: I’m Kat - the former General Manager of Tilthy Rich Compost and now the Community Growth Manager here at CompostNow. My team and I are so excited to join CompostNow in the fight to starve landfills and build soil!
We have some exciting news to share with you! On March 1, 2017, CompostNow and Tilthy Rich Compost decided to join forces and combine as one business. By combining resources, energy, and passions it will allow for the combined business to service more households, multi-family communities, offices, restaurants, and more throughout our service area. Together the two businesses diverted 856,984 lbs from the landfill in 2016 and are looking to more than double that figure in 2017.
The stickers you find on produce include some important information about the product at hand: how much it costs, whether it was grown organically, if it was grown with GMOS or if it was produced with chemical fertilizers. After you leave the grocery store, however, the stickers (which are coated in plastic and glue) usually become nothing more than landfill waste.
