Friday Buffet

The same guy who brought you Let’s Be Frank hot dogs is working to transform potentially squandered farm products into shelf stable ones to be sold at specialty stores like San Fran’s slice of foodie heaven, Bi-Rite Market.

Thumbs up for NYC School composting. Boo for photos that make the compost bin seem like the garbage.

Man, that is one meat-heavy fridge on display in this NPR infographic! Also, who stores bacon in the fridge door?!

In this article, you can read about “One Start-up’s Quest to Eliminate Food Waste and Profit.” Wow, a world with neither food waste nor profit?

(Note: That bad headline is no reflection on EcoScraps, an cool composting company if ever there was one.)

    I’m thinking the fridge is meat-heavy because that’s what most people are the most uncertain about. I’m also thinking that bacon is in the door for artistic reasons because yeah, that’s not a common place for it.

    Hi Jonathan,
    Thanks for the mention of our NYC public school composting pilot via Earth911′s article. Re the photo that “makes the compost bin look like the garbage can,” the photo actually IS depicting a garbage can. The boy in the photo is source-separating his waste and placing his non-compostables and non-recyclables in the garbage where they belong. I guess the author chose to use a garbage-related photo as opposed to a compost-related photo. We sent both. Just set up our Twitter feed today @greenschoolsny. We will follow you. Hope you follow back!
