GLOBAL GREEN USA LAUNCHES ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVE AT MULTI-FAMILY BUILDINGS IN ALBANY, CA AIMED AT DIVERTING MORE FOOD SCRAPS FROM LANDFILL

November 13, 2014 (Albany, CA) -- Global Green has joined forces with the City of Albany, CA and members of its Coalition for Resource Recovery (CoRR) to launch in-depth pilots in select buildings to collect valuable data, test innovative products, and support the broader rollout of food scrap recovery across the region (see a video about the pilot launch here). The system being piloted includes the use of water-resistant paper bags for compost recovery, which are anticipated to facilitate greater participation while also ensuring that composters in the region can process the waste easily into high-value soil products. Increasing the availability of compost for the region's farms can also help them reduce irrigation needs, a crucial drought-fighting measure. These efforts are part of an overall organizational mission focused on advancing smart solutions to climate change.
