Totally Green Partners With Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad

TULSA, OK--(Marketwire - Jul 5, 2011) - The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad purchased the ORCA Green Machine™, a rapid compost accelerator manufactured by Totally Green, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: TLGN), a pioneer in organic food processing systems and compostable packaging alternatives. This purchase is the latest in the railroad's efforts to support sustainability initiatives.

The railroad plans to partner with local restaurants in an effort to reduce the amount of food waste being diverted to landfills. The ORCA Green Machine utilizes non-hazardous microorganisms in conjunction with BIO-Chips. It comes in three sizes and meets the needs of most industrial kitchens and restaurants, as well as excels at meeting and exceeding corporate sustainability initiatives. The railroad purchased the ORCA600 model.

According to Ed Lacy, manufacturer's representative for Totally Green: "The machine composts up to 600 pounds of organic food waste per day into harmless, nutrient-rich grey water that can be safely put into the sanitary sewer system."

"The railroad strives to be the best in our on-going sustainability initiatives," said Al Harper, president and CEO of Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. "We are committed to staying on the leading edge by embracing environmentally friendly practices. Adopting Totally Green's technology is another way we can make a difference for our community."

The railroad is also purchasing Totally Green's Ingeo™ Green Bottle Spring Water. The Green Bottle Spring Water is packaged in plant-based PLA, compostable material and filled with pure spring water. "Our goal of converting our concessions operation to a fully sustainable operation is now achievable," stated Gary Keil, business manager at Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. "With the addition of the ORCA Green Machine and the Green Bottle Spring Water, we will dramatically reduce our disposal costs and increase the efficiency of our operation, while helping Durango's downtown restaurants do the same through our partnerships with them."

According to Lacy who is a Durango resident: "The ORCA Green Machine has been installed by several high-profile customers across a number of markets including, convention centers, cruise lines, enterprise cafeterias, government facilities, hospitals, hotels, produce growers, stadiums, supermarkets, and more. Totally Green is also in advanced discussions for a number of new installations across the U.S."
