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.

  • From Clean Memphis: #LoveWhereYouLive: Starting your own home vegetable garden? Here are a few time-tested tips. It's easy to start and doesn't require as much effort as you think! You'll be enjoying your fresh veggies in no time.⠀
⠀
1) Location is key. Most vegetable plants do best in full sun.⠀
2) It’s all about the soil. The best soil includes lots of compost and organic matter such as composted leaves.⠀
3) Water wisely. One inch of water per week is adequate!⠀
4) Use Mulch. Add a three-inch layer of any organic mulch around your plants and over the irrigation lines if possible.⠀
5) Don’t over fertilize. Excessive fertilizer can be harmful to your plants and the soil.⠀

  • Great advice from @clean_memphis 💚 #ActLocal: Here's an easy way to reduce food waste and give back– support the @midsouthfoodbank! They are distributing goods through food pantries throughout the area. They are also increasing their Mobile Pantry distributions! On that note, they continue to need donations of food and funds! $25 can help provide 75 nutritious meals. Can you help?⠀
