Hi Stephanie,
I like your idea! Your example re: food waste and pig farm is a perfect example. Another is what often happens with building sites, when someone has excavated and wants to get rid of their soil, and somebody else needs clean fill. This works well, but can you give further examples to see if there is a strong enough model to pursue?
I was also thinking about moving house and the need for sturdy cardboard cartons, but I found that last time I moved,I had to purchase cartons from the removalist because a lot of products now come in thick cling wrap (plastic) rather than boxes, and many retailers were unwilling or unable to supply cartons. Some just rip them up for recycling.

Hi Katie,
This is a fantastic way of improving the aesthetics of our neighbourhood, and the link to the manual showed so many inspirational views of the wonderful achievements of San Francisco locals. I love the mosaics. I think this is so well planned that it could easily serve as a model in other countries too. Thank you for sharing.

Lyn commented on Enrich your garden with used coffee ground!

Hi Duong,
Coincidentally, yesterday a tradesman told me he always uses his ground coffee waste for fertilising his citrus trees, and then I saw your post, so this is excellent news for the environment. Thank you.
