Leave a comment with your own earth-friendly tip for a chance to win a BLANCO SOLON Compost System. One winner will be drawn on Earth Day – 4/22/12.
With Earth Day right around the corner, it is important to remember earth-friendly tips that can help make your life easy and more eco-friendly all year long. Leslie Hoffman is the curator of the Shelter Island “Gimme Shelter Project” and offers ways to incorporate composting as a lifestyle.
In her new Shelter Island Kitchen, Hoffman has installed 4 garbage cans, a worm bin and a compost bucket recessed into the counter top. “By making sure that the proper receptacles are built into your space, you will ensure that everyone separates the trash for best recycling results,” Hoffman states. “All of my food waste will stay right on my property, and everything else will be presorted for neatly being taken to the recycling center.”
GIMME SHELTER is intended as a story-telling vehicle to inspire conversation about community and sustainability. The project website, www.gimmeshelterproject.org/ provides extensive information about the project. The project can also be followed on Facebook and @shelterhg on Twitter.
