Compost at home: Reduce global warming

Many people argue if composting at home really helps reducing global warming, the answer is yes.

"When waste is sent to landfill, air cannot get to the organic waste. As the waste decomposes, it forms methane, a harmful greenhouse gas, which damages the Earth’s atmosphere. However, when this same waste is composted above ground at home, oxygen helps the waste to decompose aerobically. This means no methane is produced, reducing global warming." -www.greenquestionsandanswers.com

So, we want to share an example of how to compost at home. Space is not an issue, however, you need a small piece of land to compost.

1. Gather degradable waste (fruits & vegetables) and place them in a small whole in your garden.

But then again…. R E D WORMS would be grateful to eat all your waste and produce a rich organic fertilizer!
