One cold, rainy day, I received a call from a curious member asking what we do with the methane produced in the composting process. At that time, I was a brand new CompostNow employee and had juuust begun to learn the ropes. This call led me to a number of questions - “What DO we do with the methane? Is methane even a byproduct of our composting system of choice? What IS our chosen composting system?” Thus began my research into aerobic composting and the benefits of it versus other popular methods of composting, such as anaerobic composting.
“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?
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.
Way back in 2010, our founder Matt was frustrated by the total lack of composting options available to him, and set out to change things. Over the last 6 years, our team has been hard at work, building the easiest and most enjoable composting solution on the planet.
