EcoHeroes: A Chicago composting service?

Composting is good for the environment, but for a lot of people there are obstacles to actually being able to do it at home. A new Chicago business makes it easy to compost in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Healthy Soil Compost describes itself as a “bicycle powered, year-round, zero emission food scrap collection service for residents and businesses of Chicago.” Manager Jonathan Scheffel created a strategy and found partners to help divert food waste out of landfills and put it back into the local soil. He tells us how he did it. (Photo courtesy of Healthy Soil Compost LLC)
