'Ladies of Manure' promote composting

Jan. 24, 2013 at 12:05 PM

SOUTH BEACH, Fla., Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A Florida nonprofit said its "Ladies of Manure" calendar, which features scantily-clad models and various forms of feces, is aimed at promoting composting.

Lanette Sobel, founder of the Fertile Earth Foundation in South Beach, said the calendar of women posing in and around manure is aimed at raising awareness of the environmental benefits of composting, The Miami Herald reported Thursday.

"The whole point of this is to make it less disgusting. If this hot chick doesn't mind smearing fish poop all over her, maybe it's not that bad," Sobel said. "It's a resource; it's not waste."

The calendar is available for $25 online, or for a $20 donation at a Friday fundraiser at the Cafeina Wynwood Lounge in Miami.
