- The average U.S. family of four produces about 2,000 pounds of food waste each year, which is either thrown in the trash and then landfilled or disposed of down the drain by way of in-sink disposals.
- Are you bothered? None of us will ever engage with this issue of food waste and make necessary changes to reduce or recycle if we do not understand or acknowledge there is a problem. That is, most of us are unaware of the amount we discard because we use garbage disposals or place it with our trash.
- There does not appear to be a connection between food waste and the environment. That is the massive amounts of Greenhouse gases we generate in our own home by the current disposal system of food waste.
- Once food is disposed of into landfills, it begins decomposing and during decomposition creates a by product Methane Gas. Methane Gas is twenty times more dangerous as a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
- Did you know that by your own government figures , that food waste is the largest single component of the waste stream that is disposed? And, until the inventions of Winrows was the hardest component to collect for recycling? There are less than 100 food waste collection programs today in the United States. Link
- Food being the second largest component of generated waste by weight and combine that with over 60 million homes that have in-sinkerator food disposers, Winrows can reduce landfill costs, and have immediate impact on sewage treatment in your City, County, or State.
- Did you know that it is estimated that as of today only 1.4% of food is recycled in your City, County, State?
- The most effective and persistent solution to food waste is Winrows which improves recycling. Rather than induce guilt or shame Winrows provides a non-intrusive program for change in behavior.
- During Research and Development of Winrows the inventors looked at current systems, and the barriers to participation and found that no system was developed using Community Based Social Marketing and were developed as stand-alone systems. Winrows has a built-in SYNERGY with Fill-A-Box and Stat-Medicament-Disposal.
