The gift of a year of compost pick-up might be the last thing that a loved one might expect to find under the X-mas tree (unless it’s a living tree from Urban Roots that is). At the same time, it just might be the most thoughtful gesture, depending on the person of course.
Earlier today Mike Raleigh of Farmer Pirates Cooperative sent me a note suggesting that the gift of composting pick-up (for one year) might just be the perfect gift for the earth-lover in any family. “For $100, Farmer Pirates will pick up your loved one’s compostables every two weeks and transform what would be waste into a valuable resource for our community,” Mike wrote. “Give a Christmas gift that says you care about the environment and your community. And don’t forget, a gift of compost pickup from the Farmer Pirates will put the worms of Buffalo in the holiday spirit and keep them caroling until the springtime thaw.”
On top of the residential pick-ups, Farmer Pirates is also working wonders in the commercial community. “We have been building momentum with our commercial pickup service,” Mike continued. “With three restaurants now participating, as well as the Lexington Co-op. We would love to hear from more businesses looking to divert compostables from their waste stream.”
