One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Compost

At first, it was hard to remember to put my banana peels and coffee grounds into the bucket instead of the trash can. Now, it irks me to toss a banana peel in the garbage.

It came from the earth, why shouldn't it go back into it? Sprinkling compost in your garden adds rich nutrients not present your average bag of dirt.

It's completely free, and completely useful. The City of Austin even encourages it!

Old habits die hard-- but new ones can reduce your carbon footprint :)
