Holiday Fair Composting

DSC_2976Composting and recycling can be confusing. For instance, did you know you can compost used paper plates, toothpicks, napkins, and tea bags? Or that you can compost close to 25% of your household’s waste? A great list of 75 Things You Can Compost, But Thought You Couldn’t can be found by clicking on the photo above — please check it out.

Now some may not find the photograph of trash bags below very appealing, but what if I were to tell you that those bags are full of compostable material? . . . and that we were able to compost close to everything during our Holiday Fair? If you were there you may have noticed that we didn’t even have a landfill trash receptacle present . . . well that was because everything we used this year was compostable — from the forks to the cups. Everything. So I’d like to send out a big THANK YOU to everyone that helped reduce the carbon footprint of our Holiday Fair . . . it’s good to know that the waste from our celebration will be turned into fertile soil rather than sitting in a landfill.
