Celebrating Cities with Organic Waste Systems

-- Quote of the Day --

“I really wanted to travel, I was a good writer but I hadn’t really developed my travel writing voice – and that is where my blog came in. I blog on it regularly – the first few posts are a little embarrassing …but you develop your voice over time, it was only through practice really… you know that 10,000 hours at something to really become good at it. …The blog allowed me the opportunity to be able to see what really resonated with people, to digest their feedback. Before I wrote my first book I had already had years of writing experience and communicating with others interested in this topic.”

~ Shannon o’Donnell

Today’s quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode that aired back on … titled: Volunteer Travel

New York city plans on doing a citywide composting system including large business and apartment buildings, schools and residences. According to the article I read the city actually has the burden of burying 1.2 million tons of organic compostable waste in landfills annually, at a cost of $80 per ton. The organics bins will be made available in the same areas as recycling and garbage bins, to increase participation. Starting in selected areas of the city the program will eventually include everyone in the city by 2016… saving them about $100 million dollars per year, not to mention income generated from the composted product.
