Compost at Home.

What's It Worth? ...

The Why.

4.5 million tonnes of food waste goes to landfill!! The Composts are getting jealous!! …


When our leftovers make their way to landfill, it ends up underground. Then, because the air and light can't get to it, methane is produced as it breaks down ... methane is a Green House Gas that is really bad for the atmosphere, it is one of the really bad guys in causing Global Warming. We send 4.5 million tonnes of food waste to landfill every year and it's causing a spot of bother!

If we compost at home, hardly any methane is produced. The good news doesn't end there, for anyone whose fingers are green, or for those who have ambitions of green fingerness-ness ... After about 9 - 12 months, that compost is going to make THE best feed for your soil, whether that's in pots or in the garden - your plants and flowers can't get enough of the good stuff.
