EcoScraps (Salt Lake City, Utah), a provider of organic, chemical- and manure-free lawn and garden products, has received $250,000 from Chase and LivingSocial as part of a grant program designed to increase awareness of the important role small businesses play in local communities. “This grant will help EcoScraps create more jobs, repurpose more food waste and produce more compost products,” said EcoScraps CEO and co-founder Dan Blake. The company is currently turning 100 tons of produce waste each day from grocery stores into compost and other lawn and garden products. Other grant recipients included UsedCardboardBoxes.com, Bright Power, and Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream.
