Composting is awesome for a variety of reasons. Organic wastes, such as food waste and yard waste, make up 25 to 50% of what people throw away. The benefits reach beyond reducing landfills, removing the need to transport these heavy wastes saves fuel and energy. Compost makes an excellent source of nutrients for plants, lawns and gardens. Composting can save money by reducing both trash bills and on the often hefty expenses at the home & garden store.
It also can be fun watching your previous landfill waste become useful. Now get out there and get to composting!
