Upcycling Crop Waste
Upcycling plant waste from farming directly contributes to positive environmental changes. This agricultural waste would otherwise be burnt, creating more pollution. Or, sent to landfill.
If not disposed properly, crop waste can produce pollution in the form of methane gas. If burnt, it will create carbon black. 1/3 of all black carbon emissions around the world come from burning crop waste. Although it’s generally banned, it’s still happening, even in the United States.
Crop waste is available all across the world is and a major source to help us reduce our dependence on plastic and other non-sustainable materials such as glass.
