What is a compost?

May 9, 2011

“Going Green” has many connotations, and some of the simplest and cheapest ways to save the planet doesn’t include buying a $40,000 hybrid vehicle. If you’re a green thumb and like to see beautiful things grow, there’s a very easy way to do it: start a compost!

Compost is a very dark soil that contains many rich nutrients that plants absolutely love. Combining all your organic and decomposable trash in one container—food scraps, egg shells, raked leaves—this matter breaks down through the use of bacteria, fungi and worms to create plant food that is one of the best substitutes for dangerous and expensive fertilizers. You’re saving space in landfills and giving your green friends living outside your house the nutrition they not only want but thrive in.
