Spring is the time when many of us are out buying mulch to spread around our trees and bushes. Wouldn't it be nice to have that mulch delivered directly to your door for free? Well, thanks to a Kickstarter program, that's now a possibility.
When we use wood chip mulch, it helps hold moisture and adds nutrients back into the soil. That means less watering.
I was contacted about this new Kickstarter project and decided to back it enthusiastically. Why? Because it not only provides the simplest way to request a load of free wood chip mulch, but it also saves diesel fuel and keeps mulch out of our already overloaded landfills. It's a win-win.
Mark Russell, I.S.A. Certified Arborist and the project's founder explains:
Since 1997, I've delivered mulch across the city to the dump sites, all the while knowing that I was passing people who would love it. The problem was the inefficiency of tree services maintaining their own separate in-house mulch request lists. I realized that we needed one centralized list for maximum efficiency. So we built Phase One and people love it.
The Free Mulch app from AboutTrees.com is the fastest way for clients to get their mulch. It saves the tree service time and fuel, and for every connection the app makes, it prevents the needless waste of an average of two to five gallons of fuel, and keeps 12-30 cubic yards of valuable material out of the landfill!

This is a seriously cool thing, don't you think? It gets two green thumbs up from me.
