GREAT NEWS IN A NUTSHELL!
YAY! BRAVO VERMONT for banning food waste in the trash! Yay for composting! I Love Vermont! One of the most ecologically progressive states in the US, Vermont has the most comprehensive ban on single use plastics, and just implemented the FOOD SCRAP BAN. Everyone is now required to compost their food waste.
While a remarkable 72% of all Vermonters already compost, 20% of Vermont’s waste is food, which produces methane gas (25 X more dangerous in affecting climate change than CO2) The state invested nearly a billion dollars in composting facilities , education, and infrastructure to help all restaurants, food outlets and Vermonters compost!!
Spread the great news!
