Here’s how to have a great conversation in Manhattan that works every time.
Take your compost to a compost station and talk to someone else dropping theirs off.
To have compost to drop off means you’ve stored it in your small apartment, probably keeping it in your freezer, until one of the days the stations is open, before they pick it up. Then you have to carry it there and drop it off. Then you see when each other ate over the past few weeks.
It’s not hard. It’s fun when you make it a habit, but you still have to do it, which means you have the motivation, which means you have a lot in common and don’t mind other people thinking you’re doing more than you have to when you really just care about the environment.
Someday everyone will compost. For now, we’re a small enough community that we all like talking to each other.
