Recycling Your Food Scraps into Fertilizer
Why should I compost?
250 million tons of waste every year goes to landfills nationwide and 40% of it is compostable!
Composting is the most environmentally friendly method of disposing of food waste. Organic material that does end up in landfills breaks down, releasing methane. When you don't compost your food gets dumped in landfills, where it’s trapped by tons of garbage, which generate 20 percent of the nations’ emissions of greenhouse gases. Microorganisms break it down by anaerobic digestion, emitting methane and carbon dioxide, contributing to global warming. The number two contributor to greenhouse gas admissions, behind engines, is food waste breaking down in landfills, and it is over forty percent of what we throw away
