Composting is a simple, yet often overlooked method for tending to the health of our planet. By composting we can reduce the waste produced at home and collectively in landfills. The finished compost is also an essential tool in improving soil ecology by returning nutrients to the earth. There are lots of good reasons to compost.
There are a few common barriers which people perceive as reasons they are unable to compost, but by learning about the nature of composting we can find simple steps that make it possible and practical for everyone. By learning about composting we can contribute significantly to our sustainable well-being.
