Composting: probably not sexiest topic, but it is quite literally magic – you can grow food from waste! Rubbish that would otherwise be destined for landfill can be broken down and used as a rich soil to grow nutrient-dense food, all in your home garden. Think about the celery tops, the potato peels and the egg shells you put in the bin – these all contain valuable nutrients! What a terrible shame for these precious nutrients to rot in landfill and not be utilised.
Household waste such as fruit and vegetable scraps, tea bags, coffee grounds, egg shells, egg cartons, paper bags, cardboard boxes, newspapers, scrap paper, toilet roll inserts, tissues, paper towel, cut flowers and paper coffee cups can all be composted at home and saved from landfill. Imagine how much you could cut down your rubbish? And imagine how strong your plants would be! It just makes sense. #backtobasics #realfood #sustainable #ecosystem
