Today I saw a TV commercial from BP oil of a little kid throwing a banana peel into the garbage. "We're working on technologies to turn it into jet fuel!" the disembodied voice said.
*That's so stupid*, I think. Compostable waste doesn't go in the trash, it goes in the yard waste, or into the compost pile.
If your community or city doesn't have a recycling and #compost program, it should.
