Way back when, I used to think everything I didn’t want, need or knew what to do with, went straight into the garbage. That was then — this is now: I have a love for composting like no other. It is fun (uh, yah, FUN!), super impactful (mmmhm) and surprisingly simple (you heard me).
*Humblebrag: I am even excited to say that after having gone on an obnoxious eco war path, my family and boyfriend all composts and loves it too! I might even use the word “addicted”. I just might.
So, why all the shout outs and love for composting? To put it simply, it’s a fantastic way to help reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions. When garbage gets taken to landfills, the contents often sit there unable to properly break down due to lack of oxygen. When this happens it goes through a detrimental process called anaerobic decomposition that produces methane (the greenhouse gas we were talking about) and prevents nature from doing the work it needs to do!
