3. You don’t have to start with ‘gourmet’ compost
Compost only needs to be as good quality as you want it to be. Don’t get too intimidated to start – everyone starts somewhere.
Waste Minimisation Officer Joanna Langford uses coffee as an analogy to describe the quality of compost.
You may just start off with ‘instant coffee’ compost – basic, but gets the job done. If you get more into composting and want to perfect your compost, you might make ‘barista’ compost.
4. Reduce your negative environmental impact
Composting has many environmental benefits!
As we know, reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is important to minimalise the effects of climate change. Composting your food waste creates significantly less GHG emissions than sending your waste to landfill.
The compost you produce has endless benefits including increased water retention, improving soil quality, and promoting healthier plant growth. You can read more about the environmental benefits of compost here!
