We’ve been trying to master composting. We have the leaf piles, a rotating barrel, AND a worm farm. The back yard isn’t messy because of these things, it’s still the kids’ toys and a real need for a good mow to blame for that.
We’re sending all the trash out to the recycling center, but it’s those #1’s that are getting refused. No.1: PETE (polyethylene terephthalate).
We can all say we’re going green, but there are a lot of folks that still need to catch up. We’re using cloth shopping bags, driving a hybrid and replacing light bulbs.
These girls are also getting more modern chores: Feed the worms (the kitchen scraps), and take out the Recycling. We recycle so much stuff it’s almost a shame that we have to pay extra in our county for trash collection at all. We only have 2 bags a week for a family of 4.
