We made this planter out of recycled plastic which is equivalent to a person’s plastic carbon footprint for a YEAR.
Greenhouse Gas (GHG) affect is as follows:
500 lbs. raw food waste (@ 80% water) = 100 lbs. organic material
100 lbs. x 50% CO2 = 50 lbs. CO2
100 lbs. x 50% CH4 = 50 lbs. x 23 (more damaging than CO2) Total CO2 equivalent =1,200 lbs.
1,200 lbs. CO2 equivalent = .55 MT CO2 equivalent per day
