Why It Matters

Rotting food scraps in landfills produce methane gas that overheats the planet. Composting can help stop this trend.

Benefits for You

Composting your food scraps instead of trashing them can help your plants thrive while saving you money on fertilizer.

Recommendations for how to take action

  • How To Start

    If you don’t want to compost at home, toss your food scraps in a bin. Then, drop them off at places that’ll compost them, like many farmers markets.

  • What Comes Next

    If you have a garden that would benefit from nutritious compost, get your own backyard composter. Low-effort composting tumblers are very popular.
