Healthy Soils Healthy Seas Rhode Island
The Healthy Soils Healthy Seas Rhode Island composting program aims to inspire long-lasting environmentally responsible behavior necessary to improve ocean health. The project has a primary focus on five communities in Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island, including Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth, Jamestown, and Bristol.
This collaboration brings together multiple organizations including Black Earth Compost, Center for EcoTechnology, Clean Ocean Access, Rhodeside Revival, and The Compost Plant, to establish business, residential, and backyard composting.
Together, these groups are demonstrating the effectiveness, efficiency, and strategic benefit of diverting food scraps from our waste stream and increasing awareness of the connectivity of healthy soils and healthy seas.
