Did you watch any TV today? Yesterday? This week?
If so, were there any commercials?
In the time it took for the three commercials to whizz by, you could have emptied your kitchen food scrap collector into your backyard trash can composter and cut your landfilling in half.
No, really- drill holes in a trash can, fill it halfway with ripped up leaves and dead plants, then add your food scraps. Finish it off by covering them with another layer of leaves. Add some water, then go inside.
Hit the pause button again and continue watching Game of Thrones. I guess most people don’t actually watch TV anymore right? Now it’s all internet and you can pause everything and skip commercials and stuff… well, you get the point!
Five minutes a week and you’re doing something in your backyard that’s as important, if not more important, than recycling.
Take the future into your own hands and tell your friends you’re cutting down your emissions, creating soil, and cutting your landfill contributions in half. The Earth’s oldest process sure is a lot of fun.
