Different Types of Composting

One of the most traditional and primarily recognized environmental efforts by household owners is at-home composting. At-home composting can consist of recycling food scraps or gardening compost of leaves, twigs, food waste and plants. Whether you’re thinking about revamping your composting duties or are brand new to composting, educating yourself on the different types of composting will help you better understand what your life and plants are missing.

Ask yourself these questions

(A) Is my kitchen compost bin (green bin) sitting in the corner of my kitchen stinking up my whole house begging for some much-needed love and attention?

(B) Do my garden and compost bin feel neglected and ignored by me?

If you answered yes to the following questions, we challenge you to put your best foot forward and take on the home composting challenge.

Kitchen Composting

Most people prefer kitchen composting over all other methods of composting due to its accessibility, effectiveness, and low effort requirement. Look in your fridge and tell me there isn’t a forgotten casserole that doesn’t need to be composted. The likelihood is you need some help in the composting department, and that’s where we’ve got you covered.

Garden Composting

Are you a garden expert or are someone who enjoys gardening then garden composting is right for you! This process requires minimum work and allows you to spend some quality time with mother nature.
