I have been putting compost in my purse or lunchbag or whatever I happen to be carrying with me. It sounds worse than it is. Rather than throw away banana peel, orange peel or apple cores I have been bringing them home and chucking them in the compost. I usually have a container with me so it isn’t messy. One more teeny tiny step to reducing waste and getting back to my tree hugging roots. There is nothing more earthy than carrying compost in your purse.
I seem to be in a changing the world time in my life both professionally and personally. Rather than just quietly muddle along reducing waste I wrote the city to ask for an expanded food scraps pickup program. I will write to your city too if you send me their email address.
