Sustainability Spotlight: Tim Bennett

Did you know that the average person throws away 1600 pounds of garbage a year? On the other hand, Philly residents who compost with Bennett Compost throw away half of that. Most uneaten food rots in landfills where it accounts for almost 25% of US methane emissions (a nasty greenhouse gas). Only about 3% of food scraps in the U.S. are composted, and we encourage you to change this statistic using a company like Bennett to do so. Tim Bennett believes that people, in general, want to do the right thing and his company makes it easy for you to put those values into practice. The best part? You can get a month of this incredible service for FREE- remember to mention that Sustainable Millennial referred you when you sign up ;)
