The Story Of Change + Bike-Powered Community Composting

We love The Story of Change. We love everything about it. Flexing our citizens muscle, aiming high, working together and acting boldly.

Big Idea + Teamwork + Action = Real Change

The video got us thinking about Traverse City’s Household Kitchen Scrap Composting Rate and our Community Sustained Compost Project.

We scribbled down this equation:

Bike-Powered Community Composting +
The Awesome People of Traverse City +
Harnessing The Power of the Bicycle To Transport Neighborhood Kitchen Scraps (and other resources*) to a Network of TC Drop-Sites** =

A Greener, Stronger and More Connected Traverse City Which Produces Less Waste, Saves Landfill Space And Grows Lots Of Awesome Garden Soil.

* Think bagged leaves, straw bales, palettes for building compost bins, worms, veggie plants, dirt screeners, wheelbarrows etc.

** Drop-Sites could include our “Sharing” Piles, Community Gardens, Schools, Churches, Neigborhood Compost Stations etc.

We believe that a community that composts together, stays together.

We also believe in the power of the bicycle.

Let’s put the two together and do something awesome, TC.
