Why should we compost?
There are many reasons, but here is the one that motivates me the most:
Methane is a greenhouse gas 26 times more potent than carbon dioxide and it has a significant contribution to global warming. The reason for its release is the decomposition of organic material in anaerobic ( oxygen-free ) conditions ( for example, in landfills, where it is suffocated by other „non-breathable“ waste – plastics, metals, etc. )
So it is a lovely feeling to know my organic waste isn’t suffocating somewhere in a landfil, but it’s becoming potent and beautiful soil again.
You can find this and many other interesting facts in our new book “Little book about composting”, that you can downloud for free from our website ( link in bio )
