Global Inheritance and the ROOTS present FEED YOUR ROOTS, a campaign to educate and integrate composting in schools across the United States. Every school will have the opportunity to win their own ROOTS compost bin that’s autographed by the band and originally designed by Ryan Riss, Erik Otto , Jeremiah Garcia, Carlos Batts or Erik Siador.

Schools will be judged on their creativity in designing the school composting program and developing a compost poster to generate awareness among students.

The FEED YOUR ROOTS campaign launched on February 10, 2007 at the 4th ANNUAL ROOTS JAM SESSION in Los Angeles, CA. All ROOTS compost bins were exhibited in a special green room inside the venue. A number of artists and celebrities signed a special ROOTS compost bin that will auctioned off to raise funds for the FEED YOUR ROOTS campaign. People signing this bin included Dave Chappelle, Jill Scott, Common,, Matisyahu, Fall Out Boy, Isaiah Washington, India Arie, Talib Kweli and many more.
