Go to the Recycling Association of Minnesota to pre-order deeply discounted rain barrels and compost bins. I just ordered THE EARTH MACHINE, which sounds pretty bad-ass when you say it with the same inflection that I do.
Also, I just noticed on RAM’s website that you can recycle your lap-top for FREE, just click on their link to e-mail them your mailing address, and they’ll send you a postage-paid recycling kit. Electronic waste is a big problem for people and the environment when we dispose of them incorrectly. So take this free opportunity to do it right!
I also noticed that they also sell and teach about composting worms, which is an approach that creeps me out, but I could probably grow to love.
