Phillipe Chadwick spotlights the good work of Compost Nashville. It’s a win for the community, for the environment, and for local gardens and growers. Their motto is Grow Food, Not Landfills.
- Bioplastics are made from natural materials such as corn starch and look indistinguishable from traditional petrochemical plastics.
- Compost Nashville accepts paper-based products, soiled paper towels/napkins, waxed paper, compostable plastics, cardboard, meat and dairy products, pasta, breads, cereals, baked goods, leftovers from cooked meals, candy, and waxed coated paper products.
- Food waste left to rot in a landfill produces methane gas, not compost. This methane gas actually plays a key role in the depletion of the ozone layer.
