CORPORATE BULLY OF THE WEEK:
Terracycle, an eco-friendly business established by college students
to sell worm poop (a highly effective organic fertilizer) has been
sued by the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, a $2.2 billion assets giant.
Scotts claims Terracycle's product labeling looks too much like
Miracle Gro. Scotts is also suing Terracycle for claiming its plant
food is as good or better than "a leading synthetic plant food".
TerraCycle manufactures all-natural garden products by feeding organic
waste to worms and bottling the resulting worm compost tea as ready-to
use plant food in soda bottles collected by schools and other
charities across North America.
