Unfortunately for us, Earth is not getting any bigger. Therefore, we must do all we can to preserve and protect the earth that we live in. This can be done a number of ways: riding bikes/using fuel efficient cars, being vegetarian, recycling, and COMPOSTING! Composting is another type of recycling only for organic materials. It is a great way to create a natural fertilizer for your plants, and will greatly eliminate the amount of content in your waste basket.
I come from a composting AND recycling household, and let me tell you, the amount of trash we have saved is unbelievable. Before composting, we would throw all of our food items in the trash, which would make the house smelly after two days. Thankfully, my mother invested in a compost bin, and now (since we compost and recycle), we throw out the trash about once every week and a half. There is just nothing that has to go into the trash bin anymore!
A little iffy about jumping on the composting wagon? I suggest you consult today's infographic for the do's and don'ts of composting. Mother Earth will thank you! [via]
