Food Scraps- Are They Really That Gross?

toter scraps 01

Today’s compost toter full of wasted food looks like a nice mix of noodles, tomatoes, chicken fingers and french fries.

Looking at photos like this (or inside compost toters in real life) normally elicits an “ewwwww” or similar.

Is it really, though?

If I put any of this on a plate in nice little portions, you’d probably eat it.

This leads to my main point: Where is the away place where stuff gets thrown?  What’s the difference between materials that are in your hand five seconds prior before they land in a plastic bag in a container labeled “trash” or otherwise?

I look at this and think, “I’m glad this is going to get turned back into fertile soil soon”.

Close the loop, and learn to embrace it.  It’s our only hope.
