This summer the Whole Foods Buckhead store increased their composting efforts by creating a recycling & composting center in the dining area. In-store diners may now separate their paper, plastics, glass, metals and organic material, including the compostable products used in the prepared foods area, for collection to recycling and composting facilities. Whole Foods partners with Farmer D Organics, who produces bio-dynamic certified compost from unsellable produce and now in-store dining food residuals and compostable serving pieces. Farmer D Compost is sold with the garden supplies outside the store entrance.
Kudos to Whole Foods for taking the lead ~ let's hope these composting & recycling centers are common place in the future!
