Sustainable Solutions helps organizations to achieve sustainability goals. Our goal is to reduce the waste footprint and demonstrate that many waste streams can instead be turned into a valuable resource.
Did you know that more than half of all waste that goes to the landfill is either food, paper or other organic waste products that could instead be composted? Rotting food waste releases methane, which accounted for about 9 percent of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions from human activities in 2011. Pound for pound, the comparative impact of methane on climate change is over 20 times greater than CO2 over a 100-year period.
Sustainable Solutions is committed to the philosophy of Zero Waste. This concept means changing our business practices, institutional habits, and our purchasing decisions to result in less waste or “zero” waste. A food waste/organics recycling program is essential to achieving Zero Waste goals for any green-minded organization. We perform organics recycling through the activity of composting. Composting is also the cornerstone to growing healthy food, living soil, and creating vibrant and healthy ecosystems.
Identifying proven and effective ways to better manage organics waste stream can be a challenge. Composting can be a messy affair, but our services ensure that is an easy and problem free process. At Sustainable Solutions, we are experts in understanding composting technology and applications.
For many companies, a composting program can also become a part of their overall employee health and wellness initiatives. Providing fertile, living soil from company composting sites encourages employees and others to plant organic gardens for themselves and their loved ones. By eating more natural, unprocessed foods produced in nutrient-rich soil, it helps keep employees and their family members healthy and more productive.
The goal of Sustainable Solutions is to create less waste in the first place and show how to use our materials and resources more wisely. By closing the loop we can create a sustainable world today and into the future.
