Our story

At an all-you-can-eat buffet, two college students noticed how much food was being wasted.

They began to search for solutions. They learned that food waste, instead of clogging landfills and gassing the air we breathe, could be turned into beneficial gardening products.

Ecoscraps®, a brand that recycles food scraps into organic and sustainable lawn and garden products was born...

Environmentally friendly ingredients and process

In keeping with our commitment to the environment, EcoScraps® produces its products in the most environmentally friendly way, reducing greenhouse gases by diverting food waste from landfills to make our soil mixes, and making the best use of other food waste materials in the production of our plant foods.

We don't just passively opt for the sustainable choice; we aggressively seek processing methods or materials that make pro-active beneficial changes to our environment. When you purchase and use our products you can be assured you have made a very positive impact on improving the environment as well.

Soils made from fruits and vegetables

Soils made from fruits and vegetables

Fruit and vegetable produce waste is an important component of our compost, which is mixed with a source of cellulose (generally ground up bark or wood fines) to provide just the right ingredient mix of Carbon to Nitrogen. Under the proper conditions (frequent turning and mixing), the all-important microbes perform the vital task of turning the raw ingredients into superior performing compost high in NPK.

When added to your garden or landscape, our organic composts and garden soils add a nutrient-rich source of organic matter helping your plants thrive and perform their best. Our fruit and vegetable derived organic compost is also a component of each of our three potting mixes as well as our dry plant foods.

Organic plant food - what can be more natural?

Organic plant food — what can be more natural?

By definition, natural, organic plant food must utilize naturally occurring materials, essentially materials found in nature with few if any alterations. Setting us apart from all other organic plant food formulators is our use of fruit and vegetable-derived compost fines added to our dry plant foods. Compost fines add additional micronutrients, and help contribute a source of microbials (beneficial microorganisms) that go to work in your soils and help to break down and release valuable naturally occurring nutrients.

Both synthetic and organic plant foods can be 'blends' or, homogeneous granules/particles. Homogeneous granules/particles are often referred to as "all-in-one" because each granule or particle contained inside the package contains each and every nutrient guaranteed in the nutrient analysis listed on the package. These products provide the best, most optimum, distribution of nutrients throughout your application area.

EcoScraps® takes pride in our "all-in-one" homogeneous plant foods. The process to create our plant foods is more expensive, but we believe you will enjoy greater benefits and results.
