May 5-11 International Compost Awareness Week

Happy International Compost Awareness Week!

lCAW, celebrated annually during the first full week of May, is an education and outreach effort by the composting industry.

What CAW has planned:

  • We are working with the California Compost Coalition to sponsor a lunch briefing in the Capitol for legislators and their staff. In keeping with this year's ICAW theme, Compost: The Sustainable Solution to Soil and Water, we will have presentations from Marin Carbon Project's John Wick, Recology CEO Mike Sangiacomo, and Judith Redmond (co-owner of Full Belly Farms). undefined
  • We have partnered with the US Composting Council and the Association of Compost Producers to distribute copies of this year's ICAW poster to legislators and their staff, as well as agency heads and regulators.
  • Assembly Member Phil Ting has introduced HR 39, a resolution declaring this week as Compost Awareness Week and detailing the many environmental and economic benefits of composting.
