    Definitely hit my goal for picking up litter today. There was so much trash following the holiday.

    Part of my daily routine includes adding my vegetable scrap and coffee grinds to my vermicompost. In case you didn't know, vermicompost is compost using earthworms for the decomposition process. Worms are happy getting new food and I'm happy keeping more waste out of landfills!
