[GreenYes] the place to be on April 13


Greetings GreenYessers,



Let's make 2008 the Year of Composting. It is a time in our history similar
to the late 80's when the NY City garbage barge launched the recycling
revolution into the national spotlight, but today it is Global Warming that
will launch the composting revolution.



Join us for this special event at the next BioCycle conference in San Diego.
all net proceeds will go to the GRRN campaign. Then stay for a few days for
the conference where we can put our heads together and kick off the Year of
COOL.



Eric
