The kitchen at my workplace is stocked with compostable plates and bowls.
Which is awesome.
But only if there is actually somewhere to compost them.
As you can probably already tell where this is going, there is nowhere to compost these items at work.
While I applaud facilities for going for what seems like the right choice, they need to take it a step further for it to achieve the desired result.
Our break room has 2 clearly labeled waste cans; one for recycling and one for waste. All they need is another for compost.
Since I do compost at home, I end up smuggling the occasional plate or napkin home in my lunch bag to add to my compost bucket. One less thing in a landfill, right?
The next step is to talk to Facilities about providing composting services. Someone has got to be the one to bring it up? Might as well be me.
