T5’s Food Trash Turns to Healthy Soils

Blog

“Deciding to join the composting initiative in T5 was a no-brainer. We pride ourselves on offering great products to the community through our concepts. Being able to help positively impact the environment in the process is a win-win in our eyes.”

—Anthony Martino, General Manager, Jamba Juice and Dunkin Donuts

    In 2016, our JFK T5 composting program put 100,000 pounds of food waste back to work. This saved roughly 38 tonnes* of CO2e emissions (because greenhouse gases are released during the landfill process).

    I was at a friend’s birthday party recently and noticed something interesting about the presents he received from guests.

The trendy gifts these days are gadgets that incorporate “smart” technologies, connect to your home and try to make life easier. You can speak to a radio to tell it to change the station, remotely lock the doors or turn off lights in your home and even buy an interactive refrigerator with touchscreen and internet access!

    Ecocentricity Blog: Probability and Climate Change

    Blog

    When climate change deniers find new evidence that suggests humans might not be driving climate change, that evidence cannot “disprove” anthropogenic climate change. Instead, the evidence might only slightly reduce its probability.
