OUR IMPACT

National studies indicate that approximately 1.5 lbs. of trash are produced for each restaurant meal served- meaning that the average restaurant produces 50,000 lbs. of garbage annually. Typically, close to 95% of this waste is recyclable or compostable.

Project Green Fork was founded specifically because of these statistics, and our goal is to create a more sustainable Mid-South by helping reduce environmental impacts, with a focus on strengthening homegrown restaurants.

  • There's a big problem. There's also a big opportunity. 👉 We can save money, feed hungry people, reduce our carbon footprint, reduce strain on our local landfills, reduce our waistline, and *live* better when we *do* better with food waste. 💚 Here's your next challenge: Take your restaurant leftovers home in your own container! You got this.⠀
