Everyone talks about recycling, reusing, and reducing. But have you ever thought about composting as the greener alternative for garbage disposal? Composting is not just about reducing waste. It’s about recycling essential nutrients back into the soil.

Here are 3 reasons to start composting:

1. It reduces waste, makes us less dependent on landfills, and decreases greenhouse gas emissions. 

 Waste lies stagnant in landfill sites where the vital oxygen that is needed to facilitate the decaying process cannot reach it. Incineration leaves some toxic ash waste, and the burning process releases a vast amount of carbon dioxide into our precious atmosphere.

2. It strengthens the soil and promotes healthy plant growth. 

No fungal decomposition is involved in this process. Through the slower and more traditional method of composting at home, there is more assurance that everything has been well-broken down by the fungi and bacteria. 

3. It reduces the need for pesticides and synthetic fertilizers.
