Inspiring a Greener Future by Sharing Knowledge
The average American throws away 4.5 pounds of stuff each day. Across our nation, over 165 million tons of potentially usable material is landfilled each year. This represents a large cost both economically and environmentally. Why throw good things away!? Diverting valuable materials back into the production and raw materials stream can save money, create jobs, and foster a healthier environment.
The Master Composter Recycler Program educates the community about easy ways to reduce waste, recycle more, and re-think our impact on natural resources. Trained Master Composter Recyclers are sustainability ambassadors. They host backyard composting workshops, attend community events with a booth chock-full of composting and recycling how-to information, teach worm shops, operate composting demonstration sites, and share their knowledge with neighbors and community groups.
