Cedar Grove, King County & Waste Management madmin
The Task: Spur local compost sales and help residents understand the connection between what goes in the food waste bin and what goes on the garden.
The Idea: Take the food drive concept and apply compost! The Big Garden Give Compost Drive had a simple call to action: for every bag of compost bought, Cedar Grove would donate a bag of compost to a local community garden, to grow organic food for low income residents.
The Result: Cedar Grove Compost sales increased by 4% with nearly 10,000 Compost Days coupons redeemed. 120 community gardens received free compost – equaling over a half mile of compost!
