Eco experiment

This is how dedicated I am to recycling–I bring home my recyclables whenever I travel. At least, as much as I can, I do. Like this cardboard cup from the Atlanta airport. (My chocolate/cake batter yogurt was DELICIOUS so thought I'd give Freshens Smoothies & Yogurt a plug.)  I was going to drop the container in our recycling bin. Then I noticed that it was compostable. Hmmm. Cool! But why not try an experiment? So two days ago, I took my Ecotainer outside and buried it in our compost pile. I plan to go back out there now and then, dig it up and take update photos. Let's just see how long it takes to start decomposing!

The stick marks the place where I buried the Ecotainer. I'm old; I need reminders. 

MARCH 13, 2015, UPDATE
 Since you asked, here's a photo of my eco cup this month. As you can see, it surfaced from our compost pile. Oh, well. But it does seem to be decomposing.

Oh, I just found your blog through the Plano Prairie Garden links and I sure am glad I did. Love what I see and can't wait to come back to read more. =)
