Totally Green Delivers ORCA Green Machine to U.S. Coast Guard Base in Portsmouth, Virginia

TULSA, OK--(Marketwire - May 5, 2011) - Totally Green, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TLGN), a pioneer in organic food processing systems and compostable packaging alternatives, has installed its revolutionary ORCA Green Machine™ at the U.S. Coast Guard base in Portsmouth, Virginia.

The U.S. Coast Guard purchased the ORCA Green Machine to establish an on-site rapid food composting solution. According to representatives of U.S. Coast Guard, the machine's implementation advances the Guard's self-sustainability mandate and satisfies its environmental stewardship program.

The U.S. Coast Guard has also launched a test use of the ORCA Green Machine that involves reusing the "grey water" or effluent for irrigation, and as a means to accelerate plant and tree growth.

"The adoption of our ORCA Green Machine technology by the U.S. Coast Guard represented our first entry into the U.S. Military establishment," noted Rob Phillips, president of Totally Green, "as well as the first application to use the effluent for irrigation and fertilization purposes."

"We see this as a tremendous 'spring-board' opportunity for both greater adoption by the Coast Guard as well as other government facilities around the country," said Phillips. "We anticipate the successful irrigation test to open up new vistas of opportunity for our sustainable green waste technology in the horticulture market."

The U.S. Coast Guard maintains 10 regional districts representing 180 stations across the United States, and has a 2012 budget of more than $10 billion.

The ORCA Green Machine allows for rapid composting of most organic material in institutional and commercial end user applications, after which the liquid compost is either returned to the soil as nourishment or disposed of through the ordinary sewer system. The machine creates meaningful cost savings for customers while diverting food waste from landfills and reducing methane gas production.

The company has tests ongoing in a variety of industries, including casinos, convention centers, club stores, cruise lines, education, hospitals, hotels & resorts, produce growers, and supermarkets.
