Food waste is a growing problem worldwide, with millions of tons of edible food ending up in landfills each year. Not only does this contribute to environmental issues, but it also wastes valuable resources. Fortunately, solutions are emerging to combat this problem, and one such solution is Lomi, the world’s most innovative SmartWaste™ appliance.
The Urgency of Food Waste
Food waste is a pressing concern that demands our attention. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), approximately one-third of all food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted annually. This staggering waste has severe environmental repercussions including greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation. Plus, 43% of food waste in the U.S. happens at the household level. The average American family loses $2,000 in food waste every year. Lomi wants to help you make some of that back… and feel a lot less guilty for what you throw out.
Lomi: The Solution to Your Food Waste Woes
We’ve had a Lomi Classic on our countertop for over a year now, and it’s an absolute game-changer. While I’m making any meal I keep a bowl nearby for food scraps to later add to our Lomi and, like magic, we have nutrient rich soil to add to our garden the next day! Here’s why Lomi is your ideal ally in the fight against food waste and what sets it apart from the rest:
- Nutrient rich plant food in hours: The end product from Lomi is nutrient rich Lomi Earth™. The Lomi Earth™ produced with the Grow mode is the most mature output of all three settings. It’s rich in microbial cultures and organic matter that can provide nutrients to the soil.
- Environmentally Friendly: Lomi’s express cycle uses less than 1kwh. That’s around half of the energy that an average dishwasher uses per cycle! Lomi is the only carbon negative appliance and actually helps you reduce your carbon footprint.
- Easy to use: Using Lomi is as easy as the push of a button! Lomi uses a single-button technology that’s intuitive and user-friendly. Plus, Lomi comes with a user manual, which means setup and everyday use couldn’t be simpler.
- Beautiful Design: Simply put, a Lomi looks great on your kitchen counter. Just because their are food scraps on the inside doesn’t mean it has to look bad on the outside. It’s designed to fit nearly every home decor.
