From NPR via Treehugger, news of Seattle's incorporation of food waste recycling into local waste managment. The City estimates that food wastes account for 40% of its garbage, so it will save landfill and money. For those of you not in Seattle who don't already compost food wastes, let me give another plug to composting with worms. I've been doing it for about a year, and my plants and lawn simply love the worm poop fertilizer. You can purchase a worm bin from Abundant Earth (in fact, they're currently on sale), or use this easy plan to make your own.
