This year’s Outstanding Business Advancing Sustainability award went to Greg and his Green with Indy compost service for their pioneering work in re-purposing food waste.

Green with Indy collected 1.5 million lbs. of food waste in 2018 and will add an additional 300,000 lbs. this year. Mayor Joe Hogsett presented the 2019 award to GWI at the annual Indianapolis Office of Sustainability Awards at IUPUI.

Unfortunately, Greg Walton and Green with Indy  won’t be returning to their regular spot at the Market this Saturday to assist with our trash, recycling, and composting efforts. The good news is that his hard work and public recognition for his contributions have brought him new business so he is streched a bit thin. He is working with us on a alternative way to support the Market’s recycling and food waste efforts. Stay tuned!
