Meatless Mondays

I saw this fact and was totally amazed!

It takes 18 years for one corn cob to decompose in a landfill, but only a couple of months in a compost pile!

 We often think about plastics and styrofoam in landfills but who knew corn would take that long to decompose. To help lessen the strain on our landfills consider creating a compost pile in your backyard or get a green bin from your local garbage man if you don’t have one already. The backyard compost pile is a great activity for the whole family—once it turns to soil, kids can help plant a garden. You can actually save hundreds of dollars a year by growing your own veggies.
