Food Scrap Drop-off Pledge

Food Scrap Drop-off Pledge

Composting reduces carbon emissions by cutting down on the greenhouse gases required to transport our food scraps to landfills. Additionally, compost can be used to nourish and support local greenery, which in turn benefits the environment.

By pledging to drop off your food scraps at one of GrowNYC’s weekly composting events in the park, you’ll help reduce harmful emissions and allow the city’s plants and wildlife to thrive.
