  • Composting

    47% of the average household bin is organic waste. Most of that waste can break down naturally in household compost bin.
    When organic waste breaks down without air in landfill, it produces methane - a greenhouse has that's 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide.
    When organic waste breaks down with access to air in your compost, the amount of methane produced is significantly reduced. That means it's better for the environment and better for your garden.
    Composting turns your waste into a rich and valuable resource for your garden.
