Texas Oncology

Every month, this local cancer clinic needs to re-home 50 - 100 Styrofoam coolers and their included freeze packs. The freeze packs are non-toxic, biodegradable, and reusable.

JOSCO Products

JOSCO is pitching 2000+ lbs per month of VISA-type napkins with a high polyester content. Their Eco-Rags business cannot use the material, so it is currently accumulating in their warehouse in need of a non-landfill solution!

The Austin Winery

This winery has 10-15 tons of white and red wine grape skins every year that they are hoping to find a better use for than composting! They are simply grape solids (skins, stems, and seeds), some residual alcohol, and yeast - nothing else added.

See Austin Winery’s Pitch Video

HID Global

This security card manufacturer creates 5,800 lbs per month of Poly-carbonate skeletons from dye-cut I.D. cards. All of the material is currently being sent to landfill, and HID Global is looking for a more sustainable solution.

Travis County Surplus

Each month, Travis County Surplus receives an average of 50 chairs from departments within the agency. They currently have a backlog of over 800 chairs, and are in need of a sustainable diversion solution.
