pie charts are almost as good as pie.

can you believe that by this time next week CHRISTMAS WILL HAVE PASSED?!? Holy moly.

Olivia sent this to me a while ago. I LOVE it when people send me eco-factoids, and this one was everything I could have hoped for. :)

A fact: Of our municipal waste streams there's ~ 12.8% yard waste, 12.5% kitchen scraps, 32.7% paper or paperboard = 58%!!!

You can compost ALL of that! 58% of our waste can be composted. Can you IMAGINE? 58% fewer landfills? 58% fewer garbage bags, and therefore less petroleum and less transportation and manufacture of the petroleum and the bags and WOW.

if only.

yeah. that's about it. I have oodles of things to say but I need to leave like, um, now for a christmas party. if you have a sec, go check out the lux blog or the lux website. we've been doing LOTS of editing and more is on the way! and in just a little bit we might have a new logo, too! stay tuned!

Carrie, my cool father in law made me an AWESOME compost tumbler. It is out in our backyard. Then for my birthday they got me a compost crock to keep on the kitchen cabinet! I need to learn more about how to really get it started but I think I am on my way!
