Today I worked on the “Green Team” at the DC Green Festival. I got into all sorts of wonderful conversations - it was lots of fun.
This work consisted of standing behind a bin for compost, a bin for mixed recycling, and a bin for landfill, and showing festival attendees what goes in which bin. (It sounds obvious but it's not always, since they've got things like compostable cornstarch plastic glasses and flatware that most people aren't used to composting.) Last year they managed to divert 98% of the trash generated by the festival from going to the landfill.
Then after that, MizB showed up and we wandered around the exhibits and bought some cool ecologically sensitive swag!
