Ayuh Maine not only produces locally in an urban farm—thus emitting less carbon dioxide—but also packages in an innovative new biodegradable material, seaweed, which grows abundantly in the state of Maine.
Ayuh Maine strengthens community both by keeping money in the local economy, and by organizing events like beach cleanups and awareness campaigns about ecological cost of food transport.
