Last month, we joined forces with SMART (Saving Money and Reducing Trash) Recycling to bring their Composting program to Rewined's facility.
We hope to save money on our trash pickup fees, get rid of those nasty dumpsters that are kept outside, and drastically reduce the volume of our landfill contribution. Saving money AND helping the environment - can't beat that!
SMART partners with the local municipal composting facility, takes our compostable material and turns it into STA certified compost soil. Every quarter SMART buys back some of that soil and donate it to a local farm, who will in turn grow fresh produce to nourish our communities. Composting is a simple choice you can make to help close the loop on farm to table – table to farm practices.
Rewined candle crew has already diverted over 1,200 lbs of organic waste from the landfill to the compost facility!
A special "Cheers!" to candle crew members Teresa & Frankie for keeping the Composting Cart Clean and Terrance for keeping up with the small buckets!
