TORISE is the World’s largest brand of certified compostable bags and films and has operations in more than 20 countries. Over the past few decades we have had the privilege to work with 1000’s of communities pioneering residential and commercial organic diversion programs, in short: We Get It!
Communities around the world are recognizing organic “waste” as a resource. The EPA estimates that more than 30% of landfill bound waste is organic material. Instead of burying food scraps and soiled paper in landfills where they create methane gases (a greenhouse gas 30 times more harmful than carbon dioxide), our TORISE enable organics to be separated from landfill bound waste and delivered to compost facilities. There, what once was wasted can be turned into nutrient rich compost. Not only does compost reduce farmers needs for petro-fertilizers but it also enables soil to retain up to 30% more water than soils without compost…returning organics back to the soil just makes sense!
