Ready to DIY and save the planet all in one go? Composting is the way to do it!
Composting is simple: it consists of collecting food scraps and yard waste, mixing it all together, and allowing water, heat, and time to turn the natural material into nutrient-rich soil! According to the EPA, 2015 saw almost 40 million tons of food waste, with only 5.3% of it being composted. That's an incredibly low statistic because composting could easily be introduced into the average person's daily routine. Unfortunately, most people either don't think about composting or they don't choose to do it because of various factors. Yes, it may get smelly and yes, it takes a bit of attention to get a result, but it's well worth the effort when it comes down to it.
