Separate and compost organic materials to reduce the strain on landfills, reduce methane emissions, regenerate soil, and grow healthy food.
Composting utilizes the natural process of decomposition to turn organic materials, such as plant matter, food, and animal waste, into a carbon-rich natural fertilizer that can be used in gardens, farms, and rangelands. Composting reduces greenhouse gas emissions by diverting food and plant waste that is often incinerated or sent to landfills. It can also replace synthetic fertilizers, decreasing the use of harmful chemicals on farms. Composting has been practiced for centuries by Indigenous peoples and traditional communities and is a central component of regenerative farming and gardening. Compost’s rich mixture of microorganisms and nutrients can significantly improve soil and plant health, with cascading benefits for human and animal well-being.
