Want to learn how you can turn your trash into renewable energy from your backyard? Then come visit the Green Tent on January 7th to learn all about biogas from HomeBiogas.
All organic waste, including your weekly food scraps and daily dog droppings, produces methane. When this type of waste is sent to the landfill, it produces methane which immediately enters the atmosphere where it acts as a potent greenhouse gas and a primary contributor to global climate change.
The HomeBiogas appliance is a backyard biodigester which harnesses the methane which would otherwise go unused. Rather than freely dissipating into the atmosphere, the methane is collected and stored in HomeBiogas until it is used for cooking. This creates a sustainable waste-to-energy cycle that not only upcycles a potent greenhouse gas, but also alleviates the reliance on other harmful energy sources and diverts food waste!
The Green Tent is located on Pacific at Grand View at the Mar Vista Farmers' Market.
