One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure
Would you believe that food waste amounts for almost 40% of all waste stream? Your “trash” – your garden’s treasure. There are lots of good reasons to compost and it can be carried out at a wide range of scales. Small containers on a balcony for single-dwelling units. Back garden composter heap for a family unit. On site compost for small commercial kitchens. Large scale commercial composting. For the organic gardener, nature’s black gold is the perfect soil amendment. For the money-conscious family, compost requires very few resources. Environmentalists, 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.
