Composting food scraps and other various organic materials is an environmental effort that has been increasing in popularity for quite some time. In 2012, Americans were able to compost over 87 million tons of unwanted materials. This is a great way to divert materials that would normally end up in landfills throughout the United States.
One company called the Rust Belt Riders are helping ensure Northeast Ohio residents are adding to the rising composting rates. The Rust Belt Riders have a simple business that has already positively impacted the Detroit-Shoreway community. Since early June, they have been successfully transporting food scraps from businesses and residences to public gardens throughout the area.
The concept for the company was founded through the struggles of their other business, the Rust Belt Gardens. After some research, the owners discovered the mutually beneficial opportunities for environmentally conscious people and struggling gardens of Cleveland. Community gardens are financially reliant on governmental assistance and this plan not only helps them but also can dramatically reduce household waste in the process.
This is obviously a green company but what sets them apart? Well, the Rust Belt Riders conduct their entire business on bicycles. In just 1 month they have already collected over 1 ton of unwanted materials and some times ride with over 200 pounds. The Rust Belt Riders have already expanded from the Detroit-Shoreway and is now serving customers in Tremont and Ohio City.
For as little as $5, you can have your compost picked up and disposed in your community gardens. If you are interested in learning more about one of the greenest businesses in Cleveland, check out the Rust Belt Riders website!
