Composting reduces what is being sent to the landfill.
Fewer food scraps sitting in the landfill means that less methane gas is created and precious space is not being used for food waste.
Composting also gives the vitamins and minerals of food scraps back to the Earth to create healthy soil. Using this rich soil reduces the need for water, fertilizer, and pesticides.
Composting serves to educate people on environmentally friendly practices and demonstrates a commitment to protecting the environment. It is an easy thing we can all do on a daily basis.
