At Bokashi Bran, we think that it’s important to note that one-third of fast-decomposing organic waste material from our gardens and kitchens end up on the rubbish dump encased in plastic, which takes aeons of time to decompose, all the while releasing harmful gases into the environment which contributes to global warming. The devastation caused by such waste is a human construct and it is only we who can contribute to solving this human problem by taking proactive responsibility for it. Keep reading the blog as we reveal how.
The Benefits of Organic Composting
In nature, there is no waste, as every living thing serves a greater purpose than its individual lifespan and contributes to the growth of something else. Composting is nature’s way of recycling, where the end product of organic (once-living) material is broken down into humus by a thriving habitat of bacteria, bugs, worms, fungi and other creepy crawlies to produce a powerhouse of nutrients such as nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus that plants use to become strong and healthy. Over and above this, composting improves soil fertility, aeration, structure and texture as well as the soils ability to hold water.
Composting your organic waste by making a few simple changes in your home will not only assist the environment and reduce your contribution to waste, but it will teach you how to more deeply appreciate the cycle of life which involves decay and new growth in equal measure. Not to mention you can spruce up your garden and lawn at the same time.
One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure
There are lots of good reasons to compost and it can be carried out at a wide range of scales, indoors or out and in any geographic location. For the organic gardener, nature’s black gold is the perfect soil amendment. For the money-conscious family, compost requires very few resources and for the environmentalist, it’s the greenest thing that can be done for our planet. Regardless of the reasons for doing it, composting is a win-win scenario and completes the cycle by returning organic waste back to the soil.
