“Carbon Footprint” has been a buzzword for the past decade. We know it is important to reduce more carbon from being released into our atmosphere, but what if it was possible to draw down the carbon that has already been released?
Are you looking for a way to make your life a little more sustainable? Composting is a great way to lower your environmental footprint while replenishing the soil and giving back to the earth. Here are three reasons why you should consider adding composting to your lifestyle.
Composting is one of the easiest ways to go green and live a cleaner, more sustainable lifestyle. If you’re not composting yet, odds are you are generally in support of the practice (I mean, come on, who wants to make trash?) but I’m guessing you’re on the fence because you don’t feel like you toss enough compostables to make it worthwhile.
I hate sending stuff to the landfill. When I’m cooking I put my vegetable scraps into a bowl. At the end of the day all the vegetable scraps, coffee grinds, and tea leaves will get dumped in my backyard compost pile. Meat and bones, however, are more difficult to compost, so I used to throw them away. I hated to see meat and bones in the garbage can, landfill-bound.
We are so lucky! We keep talking about this amazing community that we get to interact with every day, so naturally we're gonna show off how awesome y'all are.
