Kitchen Composters - Green Living Tip Brought to you by Ideal Bite
A Game of Scrap-ble
How do you spell healthy plants with just seven letters? C-O-M-P-O-S-T. Feed your flora compost made from your very own kitchen scraps - no yard (or smell) necessary. Word.
- More landfill space for letter tiles...or something. Americans throw away over 160 pounds of food per person each year.
- A not-so-challenging smell. These contraptions contain the odor better than your average pail - even if you have curbside composting and just need to contain the stink temporarily.
- Scoring free soil. Composting recycles the nutrients in your scraps into plant food.
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: I'm a huge advocate for composting, especially if you live on any bit of land. For those of us who live in more urbanized areas where is isn't as easy to compost, take this tip to heart and start composting anyway. Many towns now have curbside composting (starting in Boulder hopefully sometime in the next few months), or a center where you can bring your compostable scraps. Or try getting together with your neighbors to start a community garden where you can all use your compost to help fertilize the soil. Happy Friday! ~Jen
