Taking green legal practice to the next level

I deal with as little paper as possible, but as everyone knows, the “paperless office” is still a far-off land. However, I am making the most of my waste paper. It gives me tremendous satisfaction to turn verbose or contentious legal documents into … compost.

Yes, after shredding documents, I feed them to goodcounsel’s cracker-jack squad of red worms — several thousand of them at this point — who inhabit my vertical worm composter (giving new meaning to “digesting” legal documents). Come spring, these former legal documents will be returned to nature as nutrient-dense organic fertilizer, serving a higher purpose in my garden.

The Circle of Life — lawyer style. Cue the Lion King soundtrack!
