Composting at the Mar Vista Farmers Market!

The Mar Vista Farmers Market is taking a huge step to 'Go Green'!

Starting this Sunday, there will now be there will be three bins at each station.

1) Compostables
2) Recyclables
3) Trash

Stop by the MVCC Green Committee booth to learn what goes where and help us launch this successfully.

This program will divert the food waste (85% of which is compostable!) and take it to a composting facility, (instead of a landfill), and turn it into useful by-products such as soil amendments and fertilizers.

The market is using Athens Services who is very pleased to be a partner with the City of Los Angeles to provide food waste & organic recycling for all food service establishments in the City of Los Angeles. Perhaps our Farmers Market can inspire our local businesses to embrace this as well!
