FORT WORTH, Texas, May 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Throughout human history, the disposal of waste has looked pretty much the same. Centuries ago, we tossed our garbage in the street, creating dangerous and unsanitary conditions that encouraged the spread of sickness and stink throughout our communities.
In 1875, we began storing our waste indoors. Almost nothing has changed since. In nearly 150 years.
That all changes today with the official launch of Petal, a high-tech consumer goods company with a revolutionary appliance that will forever supplant traditional waste disposal methods.
"Today, we take the first steps in bringing a truly revolutionary technology and product into the world. This is a category killer," said David M. M. Taffet, Petal's Chief Executive Officer. "By stopping rot, eliminating stink, and halting the spread of germs, Petal's innovative, patent-pending use of freezing technology will supplant traditional disposal methods in the diaper, organic waste, incontinence, feminine hygiene and pet waste verticals, while reducing plastic pollution from single-use trash bags.
"We are on a mission that matters – to solve real problems and address real needs in people's homes, business, and the environment. It has taken two rocket scientists and four years of development to bring this innovation to fruition."
On choosing Fort Worth, Texas as the site of Petal’s headquarters, Taffet commented, “Fort Worth made perfect sense for us. Over the course of almost six months, the Chamber of Commerce has played an influential role in my decision to establish Petal's headquarters here. There’s no other place we’d rather be.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Petal and its exciting technology to Fort Worth’s growing hub of entrepreneurship. New companies with innovative ideas are drawn to strong, vibrant communities, and Fort Worth continues to attract the very best,” said Chris Strayer, Executive Vice President for Economic Development at the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. “We believe that the Petal team will find Fort Worth to be a business-friendly community worthy of engagement. We are delighted that Petal is committed to growing its headquarters here and look forward to partnering with them towards continued health and prosperity for Fort Worth.”
