Mill offers people an easy, practical way to have a better, cleaner kitchen experience, reduce potent methane emissions, and participate in a circular loop that keeps food scraps in the food system, where they belong.

This world-changing technology ensures that plastics no longer need to be made from fossil fuels or plants (both of which have a significant environmental impact) and won’t end up in landfills or our oceans.
