Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Our project will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by redirecting food waste that would otherwise go to the landfill and using it to create compost for our garden. This in turn reduces transportation emissions because the garbage truck would not need to collect this food waste and we would not need to go buy compost for our garden.
