How Composting Helps?

Why should I compost?

Composting reduces 60 billion tons of food waste from going into the landfills & reduces methane gas released into the environment.  It also increases soil moisture, supports soil bacteria & reduces the need to use artificial fertilizer. It reduces the need to ship garbage to other states.

We depend on YOU!
