Bottle Brigade

So, the worm poop thing didn't pan out. The company is called TerraCycle and they use recycled 20 oz soda containers to package their all-natural and organic plant foods made from liquified worm poop. Their plant food products can be bought at Target, Home Depot, and Wal-Mart. The recycling/fundraising program is called Bottle Brigade and they send you four prepaid cardboard containers, which you fill with used 20 oz bottles and mail back, and 5 cents per bottle gets donated to the organization of your choice (6 cents per bottle if you wash them and remove the label). It's a very good cause but I had wanted the children to actually earn cash, which we can save up to adopt a gorilla, so we will have to save this idea for next year (one company you can support is the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, a definite for our area). But I don't have time to switch gears from gorillas to submerged aquatic vegetation, with the school year starting next week. Besides, they have NO slots available right now. It's a very popular program!

On to another way to earn cash...

Speaking of Worm Poop...

I suppose we could start a worm bin and sell our own worm castings to little old ladies in the church who garden. But I bet I'd get complaints from the parents if their children are running their hands through worm poop instead of studying the Bible.
