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.
Greetings fellow composters or those curious about becoming composters (do it!!). When asked to talk about my journey to sustainability by the amazing peeps at CompostNow, I was both excited and hesitant. By no means have I reached the heights of green living, so let’s put the stress on journey, because it’s one that’s still very much in progress.
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.
