The way our society deals with garbage, specifically organic waste, is archaic, wasteful and frankly indefensible. As if all the CO2, nitrous oxides and methane produced by hauling and dumping isn't bad enough, the moisture and nutrients that this innocent head of lettuce took out of the soil never gets put back. Our soil gets starved and dry. So the soil gets slathered in chemical fertilizers to grow the next round of lettuces.
It just doesn't make sense.
To us, at GreenScience, that seemed plain silly. so we got a bunch of clever scientist types into a room and put on some coffee. there had to be a better way. We took our inspiration from the most ingenious and innovative system we knew, mother nature. to cut a long story short, we put nature in a box, and were both thrilled and flabbergasted at how well it worked.
