Compost Awareness Week 2015

unnamed

International Compost Awareness Week (also known simply as Awesome Week) is upon us. It runs May 3rd to the 9th.

It’s a big, big week here at C’sC World HQ.

Worms
Buckets
Dirt
Chickens
Bikes
Neighborhood Fiestas
Rotting Organic Waste

Sounds like fun, eh? They don’t call it Awesome Week for nothing.

Here’s the Scoop:

1. Take the C’sC Promise (a grass-roots initiative designed to create awareness about the awesomeness of small-scale/backyard/neighborhood composting) and commit to being a Compost Champion HERE.

Promisees will be in the running for some fabulous prizes:

  • Carter’s Compost Tshirts
  • Traverse City Dirt Tshirts
  • Rad C’sC decals
  • BioBag MaxAir counter-top compost pails
  • A ready to go worm bin with 1000 red wigglers
  • 1 month of free bike-powered kitchen scrap pick-ups
  • Buckets of 100% awesome neighborhood compost

2. Raise your right hand and repeat these words:

“I promise to be awesome and to try my best to compost my kitchen scraps. I will harness the power of the pile to reduce my waste, grow great garden soil and make [insert your town] greener than ever. I will be a Compost Champion and inspire my neighbors to be one, too. Yay, Compost!”

3. Post this blurb with #CompostChampion:

“I just took The Carter’s Compost Promise. I’ve committed to being a Compost Champion and will now be composting my kitchen scraps like a rock star.”

4. Be a Compost Champion by recycling your household kitchen scraps. You don’t have to be 100% awesome. Just try your best.

5. Give yourself a High Five for being awesome and helping to Green our planet.

Not sure how to compost your kitchen scraps? The EPA’s website is a good place to start: http://www.epa.gov/compost/
