Compost Bin Sale is a Sensation!

Unbelievable! Hamilton County residents rock!

We sold a record-breaking 1,862 compost bins on Saturday, May 8th. All those households composting means a potential 559 tons of food and yard waste will be composted right in people’s backyards every year!

A special thanks to Cincinnati State and Princeton High School for allowing us to use your parking lots. Also to the wonderful volunteers who carried hundreds of bins and spoke to thousands of residents, we could not have done it without you.

Our grassroots/ guerilla marketing worked! I would also like to thank the organizations who helped us promote the sale by hosting our displays, distributing our flyers, or spreading the word.

Civic Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati
Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden
Renck’s Landscape and Garden Center
Whole Foods
The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County
Building Value
WCPO, Channel 9
WVXU, 91.7
The Enquirer
The Community Press

And dozens more who passed out flyers. I’m amazed how the response keeps growing year after year. Yay for composting!
