The reasons are abundant but these are our top 5:

  1. At least 1/3 of your garbage is compostable. Food is a valuable resource that doesn’t belong in the trash.
  2. Food rots in landfills, emitting greenhouse gases and noxious odors and impacting climate change. Who wants that?
  3. Compost restores depleted nutrients to the soil and therefore to our food.
  4. Composting replenishes eroding soil by putting organic material back where it belongs- in the earth.
  5. It’s inspiring. Composting gives your food a second chance at life. It is the soul of your soil.
