Do you compost? I'd love to hear if do. And if you don't, I'd love to hear why as well.
I did not use to compost because 1). I wasn't really educated on composting despite knowing it would be a good decision, 2). I wrongfully assumed it would be expensive to utilize a composting service, 3). I thought it would be gross. I know, ridiculous but, I am all about transparency. I was wrong on all fronts.
After reading the book, Give a Sh*t by Ashlee Piper, I made significant changes in my life from letting go of half of all of my belongings (clothes, books, kitchenware...half of everything in my condo including some furniture. I am also partaking in No Plastic November in hopes that the new eco-friendly habits a few friends & I are making, stick to life long habits. I think I will do an entire blog post on Ashlee's book if you would all like. P.S. You can get a used copy of Give A Sh*t on Amazon for 10.00.
As for today, let's talk about another easy change I highly recommend to help our environment...composting! I was so excited to learn about Healthy Soil Compost, Chicago's (amazingly simple, convenient & budget friendly) composting service recently.
