Predoctoral trainee wins $25,000 for composting business


April 26, 2021

Predoctoral Trainee Mallory Wolfe Turner writes, “The business venture I have co-founded with Kirstie Moore, LocalRoots Compost, was selected as one of 15 $25,000 winners for the Victoria’s Secret Pink with Purpose Project.

LocalRoots Compost leverages the combined buying power of local restaurants to secure low prices on compostable food ware, and then incentivizes restaurant patrons to compost those products. Its mission is to make sustainable choices easier for businesses and people of all ethnicities and levels of wealth.

We will use the award to pilot LocalRoots this summer with 5-10 restaurants in the Triangle.
