Most people are acutely aware of the plastic pollution crisis the world is facing today. It’s arguably the single most destructive thing humans have introduced to the planet, polluting our oceans, waterways, and land, poisoning animals, and even finding its way into human blood where it may lodge in organs, damage cells, and lead to chronic illness or premature death.
If you are concerned about climate change and looking for ways to do better for our planet, home composting may have crossed your mind. Today, we’ll explore the best ways to compost at home.
You’ll learn what products can be composted and, perhaps more importantly, what compostable products must be disposed of through an industrial composting program.
Industrial composting is intended to process high volumes of commercial and industrial organic waste, including municipal waste from household green bins and organic waste from restaurants and other businesses. Industrial composting can also break down compostable plastics and other biodegradable materials.
If you’re new to composting, the prospect of sorting and preparing your compostable products can be overwhelming. But with a little bit of knowledge and the right tools, composting is a simple and effective way to reduce waste and pollution in your daily life.
