Why you should tell your friends

Hello, Internet. I realize that this blog reaches only a few people at the moment, and I am grateful for each of you! However, Compost Go-Live is on a mission: to reach as many people in the greater Tucson community as we can! Have you ever wanted to help the environment, but weren't sure what to do? You are more powerful as an individual than you think, and by simply telling your acquaintances about Compost Go-Live, you will be expanding that power even further and using it to reduce our city's carbon footprint. Our goal will become easier if people are aware of us and want us to pursue our project, so please, read on!

The Compost Go-Live team has been working tirelessly for months to bring composting to our campus, but it doesn't have to stop there! In fact, we want it to expand, so that Tucson as a city starts composting its waste. This will probably entail people bringing their compostable waste to a central location, and picking up batches of compost for their gardens as compensation. Of course, if you don't have a garden, you may not want any. But here is a fun fact about the landfill that all of our waste currently goes to: it is a hole in the ground, lined with concrete. Which means that all of the food waste our city produces sits in a pit and rots, when it could be nurturing the soil and helping us landscape, xeriscape, and grow more food! Some people may need more incentive than that, however, and that's where you (and all of your friends) come in. Do you have any ideas that could help us reach the Tucson community? What would cause you to want to compost your food waste instead of simply tossing it in the kitchen garbage? Go ahead and post your answers as comments on the blog, or email me (octarinedream@gmail.com)! And in the meantime, tell your friends, enemies, relatives, neighbors, business associates, tax attorneys, stalkers, and anyone else you know about Compost Go-Live. Tucson is a beautiful, friendly, and unique city, and we want to make it even more special through composting waste and reducing carbon emissions. But we can't do it without you.
