Home Composting Impacts More Than You Think

Your contribution to the environment by composting food & garden waste at home, can really go a long way! In addition to improving the health of your garden with rich compost, you can contribute to the environment by reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills which creates methane gases. This part of the equation cannot be ignored, thus the reason why we stress that composting your waste at home, impacts more than you think.

EPA estimates that 30% of the waste thrown to rot on USA landfills is food and garden waste. As this waste rot and decay in our landfills it is producing methane, carbon dioxide and chlorofluorocarbons, known contributors to global warming. According to the World Wildlife Federation, the production of wasted food in the United States is comparable to the greenhouse emissions produced by 37 million cars! If this trend continues, the environmental impact could be disastrous. However, by composting you can turn your trash into black gold (compost). Furthermore, when we compost at home, we reduce gas emissions from transporting waste to local recycling sites.

Composting is a controlled, aerobic (oxygen-required) process that converts organic materials (food scraps and garden trimmings) into a nutrient-rich soil (compost) through natural decomposition.

At HOTBIN Composting, our mission is to educate and encourage customers & prospects to embrace home composting by providing a hot composting bin (device) that makes composting cleaner, simpler, quick and easy to produce…. one household at a time.

Let’s do our part and encourage others to join us, as our little contribution can really go a long way… or more than you think!
