Blue Gold for November

Four-time "Best Documentary" award winner, Blue Gold sheds light on the waste and overuse of one of our most precious resources: fresh water. The film discusses the practices that have lead to the dwindling supply of this limited resource and follows various examples from around the globe of people struggling to maintain their access and rights to water.

"differs from many others of the same vein in offering opinions and ideas from a varied number of professionals and experts that could lead to tangible solutions."
- HESO Magazine

Trashed Wrap Up

Thanks to everyone that made it out for Trashed last Friday!

The movie was great, the exhibits put together by MINA, the National Park Service, and CRM were fantastic, and Steve Hiney from public works gave an excellent presentation on their programs.  So, a big thanks to all those folks as well.

As promised, below are a couple links to good how-to home compost sites:

Both of these will give you all the information you need to start home composting.  I sent out some other resources on composting and recycling that we have here at DEQ and CRM to everyone on the email list.  If you are not on the list and would like to be, or would like these resources, contact me at and I can make that happen.

We hope to see everyone out next month!
