"When a person uses a bag of EcoScraps' organic soil, it is like parking their car for a week," said Craig Martineau, Eco Scraps' VP of Business Development and Co-Founder. "Our company recycles food waste into a nutrient-rich soil conditioner. Instead of clogging landfills and gassing the air we breathe, our products enrich the soil and help plants grow healthier in an environmentally friendly way."
