EcoScraps, a provider of organic, chemical- and manure-free lawn and garden products, recently announced that its sustainable, 100 percent organic, potting soil is now available at more than 1,700 Target stores nationwide, according to a news release. This marks the first time that EcoScraps will appear on the shelves of a major retailer at the national level.
The three-year-old company’s process is unique because it enables retailers to recycle produce waste from their grocery department and then resell it as an organic lawn and garden alternative across the store. Stocking its shelves with EcoScraps’ potting soil is in alignment with Target’s mission of integrating environmental sustainability into every facet of its business, and its commitment to expanding its selection of sustainable product choices that effectively balance price, performance and convenience, according to the news release
Safe for children, pets and the planet, EcoScraps recycles produce waste that would otherwise be hauled into the nation's landfills to create methane – a greenhouse gas emission that is said to be more harmful than CO2.
The potting soil retails at $5.99 for an 8-quart bag.
