You've grown your produce. You've whipped up a meal. Now, what to do with all those scraps? Lettuce Grow has partnered with Lomi to officially close the loop on food waste. (Hint: There's compost involved - and it's never been easier.)
Now, first things first: Let's start with the Farmstand. After intensive research, the company's founders concluded that the only way to begin decreasing food waste was to bring food production closer to people - and people closer to production. As the mainstream system stands now, produce travels 1,500 miles in 7-10 days just to reach your grocery store. From there, it could sit on a shelf for another 3-5 days before it's purchased. Ultimately, nearly 50% of food never makes it to a table for consumption.
If the Farmstand begins your homegrown produce's journey in a very intentional fashion, Lomi's technology ensures that sustainability doesn't stop in the kitchen. After all, no matter how much is cut down on land, water, and food waste, there will always be some scraps left after harvesting and cooking. (Think: Peels, stems, and the like.)
That's where Lomi comes in, with the perfect solution in tow: Fill Lomi with leftovers and approved bio-plastics, then turn waste into nutrient-rich dirt at the touch of a button. You'll further reduce your carbon footprint, all while creating the soil amendment of your garden's dreams. How's that for the ultimate sustainable kitchen duo?
