Bokashi Slope

So, before I started this blog in October, I did a Google search on Bokashi to see what I could learn. There is a lot of great information out there, but none of the resources I found were very well-organized (in my opinion). I created this blog to compile the best information for Bokashi beginners such as myself, and to document my escapades with learning to compost. Well, I didn't search blogger (duh), but my sweetheart recently did - and discovered this blog that began in August:


Wow! I haven't had time to browse it thoroughly yet, but it looks like I have a kindred mind in Austin, TX! This blogger is a self-described "apartment-dwelling gardener" - I am more of an "apartment-dwelling aspiring-farmer/beginning-gardener", so they are ahead of me in that respect as well.

I look forward to checking out this blog more thoroughly - there appears to be a lot of great content, as well as insightful comments from people who seem to be in-the-know.

[Incidentally, my childhood best friend and her husband live in Austin, as do my beau's brother and his girlfriend. And Whole Foods is based in Austin. Fun.]

Response from GT's Kombucha

Below is the response I received to the e-mail I sent to GT's Kombucha on December 31st:

Hi, thanks for the email. :)

Bottles that are returned to the stores are simply taken to nearby recycling centers.

Just so you know, we are not able to reuse the bottles because of the amount of processing that is involved to sterilize the bottles again.

I hope that helps,

GT :)

So, not the response I was hoping for (that they wash and reuse the bottles they take back from Whole Foods customers), but not all that surprising. At least they responded! My commentary will follow in a later post.
