Create a free, easy, and accessible system of composting

A large portion of our trash is organic wastes and recyclable items such as paper products and bottles. If the community establishes a free and accessible composting system, residents will not only save money, but will be working together to make our small town a better place for the environment. The composted waste can be made available to the residents of Moraga and used to fertilize the plants at parks and gardens thought the town. By composting, we prevent organic material from unnecessarily entering landfills. This allows the valuable nutrients contained in our organic waste to be returned to the environment and benefit our local plants. Even though we are a small town in a very busy part of the world, a small change can make a huge difference. Hopefully our efforts will become a catalyst to Lamorinda, The Bay Area, and even the state of California to become more environmentally friendly.

As an example to the town of Moraga, students are starting a composting program at Campolindo High School. If we can prove to the city that enough people care about this issue we can make a real difference. Hopefully Campolindo can come together as a school and fight for the environment by promoting composting and increasing recycling. It is important to remember that change can originate from individuals or small groups of people. The Earth has provided you with everything, the least you can do it try to give a little back and take care of our fragile planet. Don’t forget that every bit of effort counts towards a better world. Thank you so much!

 

The program at Campolindo is still in its infantile stages and needs all the support it can get! Please contact maddyyeack@hotmail.com if you are interested in becoming an involved member or would like to donate to this program.
