    We did a trash cleanup in our Zoo parking lots today! We pulled 2 bags of trash, 1 bag of recyclables and 1 for compost! Great job @Jori Presutti and @Minseo Kim! You guys are awesome!

    I participated in the #Houston Zoo Plastic Free Film Festival yesterday! It was great to see positive stories instead of all the depressing, no hope, stories.

  • Reflection Question
    Food Start Composting
    Do an inventory of how much food waste you would save from going to the landfill if you start composting all of the time. What are the added benefits of having compost that is readily accessible?

    We compost as much organic waste as possible. When I finally plant a garden, we will have fertilizer ready to go!!

    Yesterday was hard with all of the plastic that sparklers and other small obnoxious things come in. However, my daughter did a great job helping me clean everything up and get it disposed of properly!

    My husband and I watched Morgan Spurlock's "Holy Chicken" documentary. It was really eye opening about the misdirection of the chicken farming industry as far as labeling is concerned. Also the acceptability of chicken mortality on these farms. so many animals are "wasted". It made me really appreciate my little back yard chickens.
