Oh little unicorns, I have some incredibly exciting news to share with you: the Unicorn is composting!
Landfills, the destination of the majority of our garbage, are filling up rapidly. They are closing at a rate of 1 per day in the country, and space is running out. But so much of our waste never needs to hop on that truck to end up at a landfill. At the Unicorn, 80% of the waste we produce is compostable or recyclable. Now, that waste is going towards making healthy gardens instead of rotting in a landfill! Coffee grounds, veggie scraps, and newspapers make delicious, rich compost! It takes thousands of years for the earth’s natural processes to build up good soil, but the addition of composting cuts down that process to just a few short years. The Unicorn is helping healthy gardens grow!
We give our compost to Collective Resources, Inc., a local company that collects compost from homes and small businesses. We also donate our grounds to a local gardener/farmer. We are so please to be reducing our carbon footprint, and improving our local community at the same time.
You can compost at home too! All of these things can be saved from going to a landfill:
