40% of US food supply is going to waste

Food waste contributes to 10% of all Greenhouse gas and is the 3rd largest global emitter of CO2.

Meanwhile 1 in 8 Americans are struggling to find enough food to eat.


In the last century, with food demands growing exponentially, we have depleted our soil of nutrients, the food we eat today is less nutritious than what our grandparents grew up eating. On top of that, 40% of our food supply is lost every year. This loss massively contributes to two of the greatest concerns we face today: climate change and hunger problems.

At Circular, we aim to prevent climate change and hunger with one solution. We recover food waste from the source, convert it to organic fertilizer, grow organic produce, and feed the world with regenerated healthy food, all with the help of our friend the earthworm. By completing the circle, we heal our planet, heal our soil, and heal our people.
