NRG partners with Billion Oyster Project & Earth Matter to cure oyster shell at their SI location.

Jordi, Devin (operations staff), Alberto (shell collection manager) and Charlie (Earth Matter Bd. of Director) stand on top of 100,000 lbs of recycled oyster shell!  That’s approximately 1 million shells.  Year round shell collection + curing at NRG by Earth Matter has been going strong since May 2015!


Devin offloads a toter of oyster shells from one of our Brooklyn restaurant partners.

A huge thank you to NRG, at whose Staten Island location we’ve finally found our shell curing site, and to the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery! Without your support in this effort, shell collection could not continue!
