Terracycle in effort to...



In efforts to practice what I preach I am going green...
Start small...think BIG! I live in a apartment now I just need to find a way to compost my own trash without smelling up the place.
Today...
Go to goodwill purchase 100% recycled planters...
Buy tomato plants, strawberry planters and cilantro...
Make a big big mess...
Tada...
I also used a new and up coming exciting fertilizer (worm poop)...
I have been researching this Co for my class...
They are smarter than should be legal...
Terracycle...
They are 100% organic, they use peoples trash for compost, feed it to the worms and make poop tea. 100 % of their packaging is recycled; reclaimed soda bottles, milk jugs and other trash that I guaranty the 27 yrs old Princeton drop-out claims is treasure.

Oh I love seeing into others patios! Worm poop rocks, lol, no really the casings really work!

A neighbor here has huge plastic palm trees and the other neighbors chatter about it all the time, and I think they are festive...better than a boring no plant porch!

Save the Planet! Nuke a Gay Whale! Sorry, I just always thought that was a great bumper sticker...

Just telling it like it is said...

Chef E: It takes so little for me to be happy and smile;)

Buffalo: how about save the planet and hump a whale?

If you drink coffee, throw the grounds in the compost. It'll make it smell...well, LESS bad.

I have a nice size garden for our family of five. It has a 30ft row of Italian greenbeans, 12 cucumber plants (I was going to do six cukes/six yellow squash but somebody mixed them in the flats), 6 zuchini, 14 tomatos of various types, 30 pepper plants of various types. Additionally I transplanted 7 very larg blueberry bushes from the "U-Pick" retired farmer guy as well as planted two bundles of sweet onions. I don't fertalize. I just go around the neighborhood and throw everyone's yard clippings into the back of the truck and pile it into the garden for mulch! We may need another freezer this year. :)
