Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Compost


By Cari Martens

Whether you like it or not, we all produce heaps of food waste.

Now in an effort to reduce landfill size, Boulder, Colorado City officials have begun implementing a composting plan. It allows residents to place all food waste in a container, along with yard scraps, that is then carted away to a compost heap outside of town. All of this is part of the greening of America, and what we call “Green Hot.” I would love to be able to use a service like this, unless, of course, it called all the critters in the neighborhood to my house!

Read more about it and about other green efforts at the Green Daily.
