My idea focuses on the company Compost Cab, which provides residents of the D.C. area with materials to put their food waste in bins, which Compost Cab picks up every week and takes the waste to a compost pile that is then turned into fertile soil. By compositing food waste, methane emission that comes from landfills is decreased, decreasing pollution. I chose to focus on this idea in order to highlight the growing pollution issue and to show that there are ways for urban cities like D.C. to practice environmental sustainability and decrease the pollution.
