Target to Sell EcoScraps’ Organic Potting Soil Nationally

Press Release

February 27, 2013

 EcoScraps, a Provo-based provider of organic, chemical- and manure-free lawn and garden products, has announced that its 100-percent organic potting soil is now available at more than 1,700 Target stores nationwide. This marks the first time that EcoScraps will appear on the shelves of a major retailer at the national level.

“There is no way to overstate what a big milestone this is for us,” said EcoScraps CEO and co-founder Dan Blake. “This partnership with Target underscores the drive for consumers to find simple, easy ways to use sustainable, high-quality products, and we are excited to be a part of that.”

“There is no national brand that is bringing organic, sustainable lawn and garden products to consumers like EcoScraps is,” said Nancy Pfund, managing partner at DBL Investors. “The growth that this company has seen in just a few short years validates that EcoScraps answers a large consumer need that has not been met until now. As awareness about EcoScraps’ products continues to grow, I anticipate that other major retailers will follow Target’s lead.”

EcoScraps is entereing its third year of operations. The company’s process enables retailers to recycle produce waste from their grocery department and then resell it as an organic lawn and garden alternative across the store.
