Kitchen Composting 101

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).

When garbage gets taken to landfills, the contents often sit there unable to properly break down due to lack of oxygen.
