I thought I should do a little video clip for Earth Day. I will never be a radio celebrity with that voice, but, what-evah.
It took me a few tries to come up with this stupidly simple idea. Probably someone who drinks coffee could’ve come up with it sooner.
I hated wasting all those plastic bags on walks. And I hated creating so much extra nasty garbage that had to be taken to the dump. And I really hated the smell that would sneak out of the bag. It kind of ruined the walks for me.
I picked up a few of the biodegradable bags from a local park (shh..I figure it’s okay, since I actually pick up poo when I’m at the park, but you can buy them if you feel too guilty about it). The bags last a really long time with this little method. My sons are still resistant about carrying a coffee bucket out around the neighborhood, but if you’re like me and don’t give a dang-durn what your neighbors think, then give it a try. Besides, it might get you some new acquaintences because it’s a bit of a conversation piece!
P.S. Don’t use this compost pile for your food garden! (As if you would WANT to…it’s just a disclaimer!)
