Reducing food waste is a powerful way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fight global warming. Composting is nature’s way of recycling. Composting reduces the amount of food waste sent to landfills, protects water quality and retains water, makes soil healthier and more fertile, and benefits the environment in a natural way.
You can compost with or without worms. Both types of composting help recycle food scraps and wastes. After the food is completely composted, it looks like soil. Composting enriches the soil, improves the health of the soil, and helps improve the soil's fertility. Composting food provides natural and cheap nutrients to the soil and also increases biodiversity.
We have seen lots of food being wasted and thrown away. It’s time to change and use both composting and vermicomposting (worm composting) to turn your garbage into gold.
