GGL, thanks for starting this thread. What a moving article! It's given me pause.

I want to share something very positive and uplifting with you all. A few months ago I came accross this incredible website www.ecocycle.org, which helps organize Zero Waste events in Boulder, CO. I'm organizing a singing event (happening this Saturday) and I decided to make it a "Green" event. We'll have compost collection! Not just for food scraps: we've bought earth-friendly, biodegradable plates, cups, and fake-plastic forks (made from potato starch), so it can all be composted. This is an event with about 100 people, and a potluck dinner on the grounds. I expect to have less than one bag of trash, and instead, several bags of compostables! Of course we'll have recycling collection as well.

I just posted more details in my blog thread.

It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
