Learning to Recyle, compost and become self-sustainable

Imagine that we live and work in a self-sustainable welcome center in the upper peninsula of the state of Michigan.

An example of how we can maintain and create a self-sustainable environment can be a base for beginning our project. "Technically, geothermal energy will be harnessed for heating and cooling systems within the building. This system will be tied to a passive ventilation system to reduce energy usage".As shared by the Sustainable Living Program"
Garbage and Recycling are important aspects to consider when trying to live a healthier, self-sustainable Greener lifestyle. Everything in our self-sustainable green building will need to be recycled and reused. How shall we achieve this?

First, we must research how we can go about recycling our supplies.  There are many governmental documents to support living a cleaner, organic, green lifestyle. Blogs are also a wonderful way to research what we need to know about recycling. Visiting educational and environmentally friendly blogs can provide excellent information:

    Composting: We are Learning to make a compost Bin to recycle :

    We use recycle bins to organize our recycling efforts!

    Recycle what is composted. We recycle the waste, paper materials and kitchen waste to sustain the welcome system and to nourish the compost bins.We use the composted material to fertilize our gardens, nourish the plant life and feed the native wildlife.

    With recycling, composting and sharing of natural resources, the Welcome Center thrives. We reuse and recycle to reuse while reducing our waste materials. This helps us to be a wonderful new self sustainable welcome center!
