It’s just a fact. Everything rots. Well, except plastic and some fast food.
Composting is the natural process of recycling organic matter, such as leaves and food scraps, into a valuable fertilizer that can enrich soil and plants. Everything that grows, rots. When you intentionally compost you’re just giving your components the conditions for that rotting (or decomposing) to happen.
- Keeps waste out of landfills.
- Creates a valuable soil amendment.
- It’s a fascinating process to watch.
- It can be effortless (or require minimal effort)
Sure, there is an optimum ratio of “brown” to “green”. But, even if you don’t create optimum conditions, compost will still happen. Even if you don’t ever turn it, compost will happen. It will take longer…but it will happen.
