Totally Green Enters U.S. Hospital Market With First ORCA Green Machine Installed by UT Southwestern University Hospital - St. Paul

TULSA, OK--(Marketwire - May 13, 2011) - Totally Green, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TLGN), a pioneer in organic food processing systems and compostable packaging alternatives, has installed its revolutionary ORCA Green Machine™ in the main kitchen at the University Hospital - St. Paul of the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center.

The University Hospital - St. Paul purchased the ORCA Green Machine to establish an on-site rapid food composting solution for its rapidly growing employee and patient base. The hospital currently serves more than 2,300 meals per day between its patient room service and main dining facility.

According to Roger Hanson, director of Nutrition Services at UT Southwestern Medical Center: "As one of the country's leading academic medical centers, patient-care providers and research institutions, we have a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint by finding alternative methods to dispose of our rapidly growing stream of organic refuse. By using Totally Green's ORCA Green Machine in our main kitchen to process organic waste, we are reducing the amount of refuse going to landfills and harmful refuse-produced methane gas in the environment."

UT Southwestern operates UT Southwestern University Hospital and six clinic facilities on the campus, offering comprehensive diagnostic services and therapies for citizens of the DFW Metroplex and around the world. Faculty and residents provide care to nearly 100,000 hospitalized patients and oversee 1.9 million outpatient visits a year. UT Southwestern has approximately 11,000 employees and an operating budget of more than $1.42 billion.

"This installation demonstrates another market where the ORCA Green Machine can provide tremendous cost savings and environmental benefits to a large organization, like UT Southwestern Medical Center," said Rob Phillips, president of Totally Green. Rob also stated: "We expect this entry into the University Hospital - St. Paul's main kitchen to serve as a spring board into the Southwestern Medical District and its cafeterias that we estimate serve more than 50,000 employees and patients daily."

The UT Southwestern University Hospital - St. Paul is part of the Southwestern Medical District, which includes a 387-acre medical complex that employs a workforce of nearly 24,500 people. The district's medical facilities attract more than 2.3 million patient visits a year to its clinics and hospitals.
