2018 has been a good year for us and bringing our food scraps back to the soil in the form of compost. Last year, in 2017, we collected over 215 pounds.
This year, we collected 227 pounds! And that was just from our home 5-gallon bucket!
Not only did we continue using Healthy Soil Compost for our monthly pick up service, but we also used them to compost at our wedding in June.
Our wedding and our 145 guests kept 139 pounds of organic material out of the landfill, which produced 10 pounds of finished compost and 100 pounds of greenhouse gas carbon emissions.
Also, just recently, I finally asked my place of employment why we had compostable plates/cups/bowls, but nowhere to compost to them. They are currently reaching out to compost pick up services around the city.
So that’s it for 2018!
Since we have started collecting in July of 2016, we have kept over 504 pounds of organic materials from the fate of the landfill. Which is really amazing when you think about it.
Ending the year on a high note!
