Composting Week Webinar – FREE – Hosted by PBPC and Agri-Pulse

Municipal waste management is a rapidly growing issue. In 2015, the U.S. sent 39 million tons of food to landfills.

Composting this waste alone would have been the equivalent of removing carbon emissions from 10 million cars from the road.

As states and localities struggle with rising disposal costs, diverting yard trimmings and food waste to composting facilities offers an economic and environmentally-friendly solution. Learn about how we can do more with plant-based packaging and materials.

Join us on Wednesday, May 8 at 12:00pm EST as we connect with Agri-Pulse in hosting a free webinar for International Compost Awareness Week.
