Composting to Paper!

Here are a few of the links that give instructions or tips for composting in smaller spaces. Each site has different ideas, so I think it is a matter of picking what works best for you.

Also pertaining to Chapter 6 in Royte, I really recommend browsing on Marcal ( and Seventh Generation's ( website. Marcal's website has a neat (kids version) layout of the recycling process of paper Royte talks about, while Seventh Generation has some really interesting facts that will help remind or convince us to recycle! Such as...
"You Are Making a Difference™
If every household in the U.S. replaced just one roll of 500 sheet virgin fiber bathroom tissue with 100% recycled ones, we could save:

* 423,900 trees
* 1 million cubic feet of landfill space, equal to 1,600 full garbage trucks
* and 153 million gallons of water, a year’s supply for 1,200 families of four!"
