I am truly touched by this monumental achievement that we've made. I, on behalf of the New York Compost Company, thank you so much for your pledge. You are one of a small handful of people to help launch a rebellion against the pervasive paradigm of wastefulness in New York City. You should pat yourself on the back.
Okay, back to business.
As our Kickstarter Campaign comes to its official close, we will definitely be in touch with you regarding the fulfillment of your participation reward. However, whatever reward we give you will not truly express the gratitude that we'd like to express to you.
I'd also like to bring to your attention that we are constantly hurdling obstacles as we approach the launch of this program, . Many of them are legal and bureaucratic obstacles set up to deal with trade waste collection and the economics of trash. For example, for us to pick-up from restaurants, we are required by law to obtain NY City and State licensing costs which, at the moment, total over $25,000. If a small company, like the New York Compost Company, wants to do their part by creating a sustainable business that diverts soil nutrients from the waste stream, how are they supposed to get off the ground with so much demand for capital?
We are always seeking help in surmounting these stumbling blocks; so, if you have any knowledge or connection to a legal/political specialist in this arena, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you thank you thank you thank you,
The New York Compost Company
P.S. Thank you!
