Garick being a sustainable company always work towards being greener in every way. One of the easiest things we could do to be more sustainable would be to recycle our organics and scraps and turn it into soil amendments. At our Paygro facility we have organics and food wastes that we constantly compost. Our process of composting is rather long, but we also make sure we add other amendments to our compost to enhance the quality of our products. By composting, we reduce the food wastes going into landfill and we have a valuable byproduct! With this compost we could either grow more food or use it as backfill for trees and shrubs. Check out our “Composting Facts" page for other ideas!
Our chart here displays the effect of a closed loop cycle from recycling food. With this cycle we could reduce more wastes and are able to produce valuable soil amendments to grow more food!
