Want to cut down on what your family sends to the landfill, but aren’t sure how? Start a compost system! We’ll talk about banana peals, paper towels, chicken bones…you name it, so that you can answer the question: “Can I compost that?” We will go through all the do’s and don’ts of composting to help ensure you aren’t sending more to the dump then necessary. It’s a great lesson in sustainability for the whole family!
