What's so great about composting?
For starters, there really is nothing better for soil than compost. It not only loosens clay soils, but it helps sandy soils retain water. And best of all, it contains no petroleum-based compounds, as many commercial fertilizers do. Gardens that use compost produce much higher yields of healthy fruits, vegetables and flowers.
Plus, landfills across the United States are running out of space. In fact, according to a recent EPA estimate, almost a quarter of the garbage in this country is composed of food scraps and yard trimmings. Believe it or not, that's about 60 million tons every year. So if you're not composting yet, it's definitely time to start.
What if I don't have a yard? Maybe you live in a city apartment or in a home without a yard. Our cities are getting more progressive every day, and it's more than likely that yours has a community composting center. Check out Earth911.com or the EPA for local resources in your area.
Here's a list of household items that can be composted:
Coffee grounds and filters
Tea and tea bags
Crushed eggshells (but not eggs)
Cardboard rolls, cereal
Boxes, brown paper bags
Wood chips, sawdust,
Toothpicks, burnt matches
