Schools are doing it. Your neighbors are doing it. Composting is a pretty cool way we ALL can help regenerate this beautiful planet!
Here’s an informative video about composting you shouldn’t miss – The Compost Story by Kiss The Ground.
Here are some interesting facts and benefits of recycling organic waste from the Penn State Extension.
- The average US. Household generates 650 lbs. of compostable materials each year.
- Over 60 percent of what we put in our landfills is organic waste, such as food scraps, yard trimmings, and paper, much of which could be recycled by composting.
- Composting saves money. Families reduce their garbage collection bills and municipalities save money on transporting and disposing of waste when organic materials are eliminated from the collection system.
- Compost improves soil, adds important nutrients for plants, and reduces the need for expensive commercial fertilizers.
Be sure to check out your city or county to see what composting courses and services are available to you! Other helpful tips and information can be found at Your Compost Guide by First Tunnels.
