Yellow Springs business featured on Secretary of State website
- Published: January 15, 2014
Local business EnviroFlight was recently featured on the website of Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted. Named as one of five companies profiled this month that “reuse and recycle,” EnviroFlight produces sustainable animal feed made from soldier fly larvae, which are fed using byproducts of food manufacturing and breweries. In turn, the excretions of the larvae are used to create an organic plant fertilizer.
“Recycling and reclamation are important industries for Ohio. It strengthens our economy and employs many hardworking Ohioans,” Secretary Husted said. “I commend each business for their innovative approaches to reuse and recycle goods that others would deem waste.”
The business has garnered much recognition over the last few years; EnviroFlight’s founder and CEO Glen Courtright appeared on CNN and NPR last year to talk about the local business.
