One Small Change - January 2011

I'm excited to be jumping onto the One Small Change bandwagon!  Here's how it works.  Each month, my family will make a commitment to make one small change that will reduce our carbon footprint.  Some months it may be big.  Some months it may seem tiny.  Every change counts.  I'll comment over on the One Small Change blog to commit to our change and follow along there for support, tips, and ideas!  I'll post here to let you know what we're doing.  Check it out.  Imagine what could happen if we all committed to regularly making one small change.

For January 2011, we will begin composting again.  When it got cold, we got lazy and stopped our regular composting habit.  I'm committing to composting every possible thing this month.  Look out hubby, you're going to be walking out to the compost pile all the time!  Okay, okay, I'll make some trips, too. 

Why compost?  It's simple, it's easy, and it's free.  It keeps things out of landfills while making nourishing soil for our garden.  We do two kinds of composting.  We have a worm bin for vermicomposting, and we have a regular compost bin in the backyard.  We had some difficulty with our worm bin and so we're letting our worms rest and see what happens by spring for them.  In the meantime, everything will go in the big bin.  Here's a One Small Change post on composting.
