Printable Compost Lists

Here's a few links to printable compost lists. Ever since we hung one on the fridge SO and the kids can be seen checking the list before throwing things out and I rarely have to dig things out of the trash or compost now. Hopefully some of you will find them useful.

Re: Printable Compost Lists

Don't you love it when your kids really get into composting? When mine were little, and we were at a birthday party or something, my DD came to me with a banana peel -- "Mama, where is their compost (collecting bin)?" We found out they don't compost, and she said it didn't feel right to put the banana peel in with the trash, so we wrapped it in a napkin and brought it home. LOL
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.

Re: Printable Compost Lists

Thanks for the lists! It gave me a few ideas of what else to write on mine that's on our fridge. My husband and I got our composter set up a few days ago, and he is afraid to put the wrong things in, lol! :) If he doesn't see it spelled out in black and white, he won't add it ;)
