Another fun fact about me, I get a huge migraine every time I enter the Miami area. It’s a painful experience, and I’d be happy to never go there again. BUT, since I am venturing down to the Keys this weekend, and I mentioned elephant poo poo paper yesterday, I figured this news story was appropriate.

Something positive has actually happened in Miami, at the Miami Metro Zoo. They have found a use for their MOUNDS of animal waste they “produce” on a daily basis.

Check out the article here.

Can you believe how much money they’re saving, while they’re saving loading all of that into the local landfill? Go Miami Metro Zoo.

…Tom Trump, Metrozoo’s horticulture supervisor tells Miami Herald that since launching last year’s project to reduce and recycle whatever possible, the zoo has saved more than $25,000 – $10,000 to $15,000 in fertilizer and $10,000 in topsoil.
