Our mission is to collect food, agricultural, and forestry waste, and process it into nutrient rich compost and biochar, and then return it back to the soil; where it will re-enter the growth cycle at your local farm or in your backyard garden. Making the environment and local communities healthier.
We offer collection service for restaurants, food processors, food manufacturers, and everything in between.
We work with your farm, ranch or forest land to provide options for organics waste management; as well as soil application
We help your town create green solutions with an alternative to landfills. From curbside options to detailed public-private partnerships.
An American company located in Florida and expanding into the southeast. The team at Sunshine strives to be a truly sustainable business that is profitable, good for the people and planet too. A business rooted in community, dependability, environmental & social responsibility; Sunshine seeks to not only divert organic waste and turn it into Black Gold but to educate and build a community that sustains for generations to come.
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.
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.
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.
