I am running a grass roots non-profit called “we compost” whose mission is to educate and encourage businesses and individuals to compost there food scraps on site. If that is not possible, a corporate-community partnerships is formed where individuals will pick up the scraps and compost them at their home or community garden. Many worm farmers and others are already doing this.

My problem is that I have found that many grocery stores, including one that you mentioned, refuse to give me their food scraps and I am dumbfounded as to why.

We need to learn to respect ourselves, our neighbors and the environment. Otherwise, we will continue retrogressing and finally end up in four legs, barking, and devouring one another, which is already happening.

Education is the key to betterment, peace, and acknowledgement that WE ARE THE HUMAN FAMILY!

Thank you for your wonderful work. God bless you!

I am glad to be informed of the focused work your group is doing and to see the encouragement of others to follow suit. In discussing sustainability, one can’t help but see that underlying technical solutions are always influences from attitude and engagement at all levels of the supply chain, consumer base, and regulatory actors.

Your post sheds light on the network of relationships that must have been developed across disciplines and business interests, finding common ground and making a difference.
