Did you know it takes 25 years for a head of lettuce to decompose in a landfill? Sending food waste to landfill creates huge amounts of methane - 28x stronger than carbon dioxide! The good news is that not only can we recycle our organic waste, we can use it to grow nutritious food and build the carbon in our soil.
We have some partners who know way more about this than we do and have some great suggestions for how to turn your organic waste into healthy soils.
ShareWaste connects people who wish to recycle their food scraps and other organics with their neighbours who are already composting, worm-farming or keeping farm animals.
- Learn more about the importance of recycling your organic waste and connect 50,000+ people already composting their scraps.
- Add your cafe to the ShareWaste map and give away spent coffee beans or other organic material.
Turning your organic waste into healthy soil is part of a larger collective response about creating a regenerative and secure food future.
