Did you know that food waste is the single largest category of waste in our landfills? By composting food and green waste we can reduce up to one third of our total waste stream.
Not to mention that compost becomes a valuable local resource, reducing our dependence on imported fertilizers and soil amendments.
Take this week's Challenge:
Want to try Bokashi composting at home?
Bokashi is an anaerobic system of composting food waste that allows for composting anything - even meat and dairy.
This week's Photo Contest prize
is a Bokashi Bucket from Each One Teach One Farms - post a photo of how you reduce food waste this week and be entered to win a free Bokashi Bucket! Each One Teach One Farms
is also offering a $5 discount for No Waste Challenge participants - just use the secret password "No Waste"
if you buy a Bokashi Bucket this month. Check out their Throw to Grow pilot project to start large scale Bokashi composting for schools and businesses.
Our CarrotMob at Kale's Natural Foods
was a huge success!
We reached our goal!
- Raised $1600 to create Hawaii Kai Shopping Center's first customer recycling and cardboard recycling for Kale's store & deli
- PLUS: Kale's had their 2nd Best Day of sales ever (after their grand opening) and we had exactly double the normal sales of a typical Saturday!
Great job, CarrotMobsters - we're looking forward to the next one!
