As you know, one of our goals is to help local businesses in Harford County grow. Each week we will feature a Business of the Week on our website, so please visit these businesses and share their information.
This week we are proud to feature Veteran Compost. Here’s some information about Veteran Compost taken from their website at http://www.veterancompost.com/.
About Veteran Compost:
Veteran Compost is about two things:
1. Employing veterans and their family members
2. Turning food scraps into high-quality compost
Our goal is to fuel our growth with people and material that others pass over.
Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans have an unemployment rate that exceeds the national average. That means that a combat vet has a harder time getting a job than the average person.
Two thirds of the material that gets thrown away in the United States every year is compostable.
So, there’s plenty of people and material to fuel our growth.
