For all those jacked into the non-stop revolving door of gossip that is the White House vegetable garden, chew on this!

The latest dirt is that the White House kitchen is getting ready to contribute to next year’s garden by installing three compost bins on site. The South Lawn veggie plot has done so well this year (resulting in ridiculous conspiracy theories) thanks to the soil used in the beds. U.S. News says that one of the secret ingredients was a shipment of compost from New York celebrity chef Dan Barber.

Obviously, having compost trucked in every spring isn’t the most efficient method of fertilizing a garden, so it’s great to see the White House taking the necessary steps to make it locally. This is yet another positive green move that Americans can find inspiration in to try at home. Organic matter accounts for almost 30% of household trash — and it’s a waste to throw it into the landfill. According to Sierra Club Green Home, of the 31 million tons of food waste Americans throw away each year, only 3% is recycled!

So, rock on Obama household! We hope to see compost bins flying off the shelves and Kathie Lee Gifford building one on The Today Show. Now, how about some worm bins?

Campaigns against fur, whether that’s at the PETA level or a small mobbing like this, don’t work because they promote the use of other animal products.
