Introducing the Southwest High School freshmen to organics composting
At the freshman potluck picnic for incoming students and their families, Sarah and I set up two disposal stations after hiding the Park Board metal trash cans in the woods. The YWCA was nice enough to let me have their unused compostable forks from last Sunday's triathlon, so those got added to our organics bins. And I took home all the plastic food containers and utensils to recycle.
I know I sound like a broken record, but: there was very little trash (this is from my station; there was one other). We had maybe 400-600 people.
