The United States has a food waste problem. According to the US Department of Agriculture, organic & food waste fills 30% of the nation’s landfills and contributes to the excessive release of methane gas, which is harmful to our health, environment, and the ozone layer. Sunshine helps businesses, municipalities, farmers, ranchers and landowners, divert their organic waste in a climate smart way.
Next, Sunshine helps reapply compost to working lands, by working with landscapers, farmers, and forest owners. Sunshine is also dedicated to improving our community by donating compost to food deserts, churches, community parks and gardens. When compost is used on working lands it sequesters carbon, cleaning our air quality.
In addition to the environmental benefits, turning waste into usable soil amendments creates economic benefits for land owners, such as lower crop production costs, improved garden yield and quality, and societal benefits, such as reduced landfill space, job creation, healthier foods, and a regenerative outlook.
