We feel a responsibility to provoke further awareness in those that are concerned with the welfare of our planet and to bring awareness to those that aren't yet aware they should be concerned. As we enter the 21st century, one of society's most pressing concerns is the impact of solid waste on the planet. Reducing waste is a potent strategy for reducing greenhouse gases because it can: 1) Reduce emissions from energy consumption 2) Reduce emissions from incinerators 3) Reduce methane emissions from landfills and 4) Increase the storage of carbon in forests. Our struggle for sustainability becomes increasingly difficult as global population exceeds 6 billion but we are dedicated to preserving the environment for future generations to come. Biocorp has developed a full range of biodegradable and compostable products that enable organic materials such as grass, leaves, and food scraps to be diverted from landfills and incinerators.
