I am working at making our house more eco-friendly. As I have said before, my favorite channel is Planet Green!
One of the best eco changes in our house is composting. We started composting last month and it has decreased our waste tremendously; therefore, decreasing the amount of methane gas that we emit into the atmosphere.
Before starting the composting process, we went to Lowe’s and bought a composter. A composter allows you to grow aerobic, as opposed to anaerobic, bacteria by letting air into the composter. We put or composter next to our house and have not been bothered by extra bugs or smells. I’ll share a few composting tips that I have learned with you.
How to Compost
1. Place the Composter in the sun to accelerate the speed of composting.
2. Make sure your compost is kept moisturized.
Things You Can Compost
Soft plant stems
Fruit and vegetable matter
Egg shells (crushed)
Tea bags, coffee grounds
Things You CANNOT Compost
Meat, fats, bones, fish
Composting is easy once you get into the habit of it. It helps to save the environment and will supply nutrient rich dirt for next year’s garden. Composting Works For Me!
