Trash or Treasure


Food waste is a major issue in the United States.  Approximately 80 of the 900 billion pounds of food produced in the US end up in the trash each year.  This amount of food waste is enough to fill 320,000 jumbo jets every year.  Of the 80 billion pounds of waste sent to landfills, 65% comes from foodservice establishments.

Foodservice establishments alone can play an enormous role in helping feed the hungry and diverting food waste from landfills if they would just deal with the food waste at the source.

Donating to a Food Bank and Diverting with the Eco-Safe Digester removes the responsibility from your trash hauler, saves you money, and helps people and the planet.
