Mulch for the People
Mulch for the People is a space for gardeners, arborists and city planners to share ideas.
Conserving water while diverting resources from the waste-stream.
An irony is that most Pasadenans pay to remove mulch from their properties, and at the same time Pasadenans pay to bring mulch into the city. It is kind of ridiculous! Private tree trimming companies pay approximately $50 a truckload to dump wood chip mulch at the landfill. And at the same time, gardeners are buying wood chip mulch by the bag at garden supply stores. We know there is a better way!
Keep up to date with our initiative to inform citizens and civil servants in Pasadena to stop throwing out good mulch and to make it available from the City for the people!

Good To-Go Campaign
Polystyrene Free Pasadena
Doing Our Part to End the Use of Polystyrene Food Containers in Pasadena!
Polystyrene is toxic and a blight to our environment! It releases toxins into our food and drink, it does not biodegrade, it poisons our wildlife and waterways.
Join the GOOD TO-GO campaign, sponsored by Transition Pasadena and other local partner organizations:
1. Sign It: the Change.org petition to ban styrofoam in Pasadena
2. Say It: with a sticker! Wear the Good To-Go sticker and attach it to your restaurant bill to let them know you want "good to-go containers", not toxic foam.
3. Do It: take the personal challenge to not use or accept any Styrofoam for thirty days (or longer!)
Stickers and cards : downloads here!
