We, the undersigned, seek the support and assistance of our elected officials and decision makers to help expand composting in our communities.  Composting helps in the following ways:
1.  It reduces our use of fossil fuels.  Unfortunately we are
     using these fuels to process and haul organic waste from
     the household to the landfill.
2.  It helps reduce the unnecessary use of fertilizers.  The
     decomposition of plant and kitchen waste can help support
     and maintain healthy plant life on our own properties. This
     in turn can help assist our animal life.
3.  It reduces the use of valuable landfill space.  Any tax
     savings could be reallocated to other urgent needs.

We seek:
1.  Elected officials and decision makers to provide support
     for composting
by personally experiencing the benefits of
     composting in their own backyards.
2.  Expanded study of the benefits of composting in all K-12
     educational settings.
3.  Public service announcements through all media outlets
     raising public awareness
of the the benefits of composting
     to our environment.


Elected officials and decision makers require signatures and contact information to be verified.  Please do not use the Facebook option to sign this petition.  We will contact you in a followup email to reconfirm your support for the environment and this petition.
