Putting Waste to Work
The compost generated by Key is now enriching the soil at Ben Franklin Community Garden for the plots of about 180 local gardeners, including those of the Kazmierczak brothers. Along with consuming some of the food themselves and sharing some with family and friends, the entire community of Ben Franklin gardeners collectively donates thousands of pounds of vegetables to local food banks, churches and pantries.
“I’m grateful, happy that Key is doing this,” said Kazmierczak. “It’s fantastic. Key is known for its commitment to the community and this is just one more example of the company giving back.”
