Today’s Sustainable Action: Composting
If you are looking to become more sustainable, one action you could pursue is forming a composting system for your household. Compost not only improves soil structure by containing a large volume of water and nutrients, but it also reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. All of your banana peels, egg shells, coffee grounds, and more, can be placed in a bin of your choosing. You need to mix the contents in the bin occasionally to help the breakdown process. Then, once your bin is full the compost inside can be sprinkled over plants or used anywhere in your yard for any other uses! This is a great way to provide yourself with a healthy yard and a reduced amount of trash. Visit these link sfor more information on how and what to compost at home!
