You remember how excited I was at the 1st of October over the fact that my mayor was going to give me my very own brand new compost bucket. I thought that was sweet. And generous. We won't go into how much it cost the mayor (by that I mean every citizen in town) to provide me with a compost bucket.
|Taupe and tan are this season's new fashion must-have.|
But what is this inside the bucket? A four-color, professionally designed brochure on how to put kitchen scraps into a bucket. And FOUR coupons for PURCHASING biodegradable plastic or paper liners for the bucket. They want me to BUY liners? Whatever became of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle? My temporary gallon can/compost bucket is now on permanent payroll. Just goes to show you not to lose heart over your temp employment situation. You never know when a sudden turn of events will put you on full time.
I'm going to rethink my neighbor's suggestion. My new compost bucket is going with me grocery shopping--as a purse--it's on the list of Things I get to do today. If you'd like to show your support of the mayor's program, I'll see you at the market with yours.
