So you have all heard about recycling, hopefully you are all doing it in your own little way! I try, but my husband isnt very good at it, so we are working at it! Our town actually had an amazing recycling program! We live in a fairly small town (well we have 2 Walmarts lol) and they give out recycling cans to every resident so they can recycle easier!
The next big step to recycling is composting! This idea means that you take all of your food, lawn, leaf and some paper scraps and water and let them basically rot and make a gardening fertilizer type soil mixture that makes gardens and flowers thrive! THIS is a great website that has all sorts of things about composting. So what exactly would you put into a compost pile? Obvosly not things like pet waste, paper that is not acid free (newspaper, colored papers ect.), things that should be recylced, (alluminum, glass ect.) meat, bones, fish, fats and dairy are also things that should not be composted!
So what do you think? Would you throw all/most of your scraps in a bucket and putting it in the backyard to rot? Would you be able to plant in the soil that has this rotten compost? Im not sure about it! lol. I have used it, and I know people, like my parents, grandparents, who do it, but I am not quite convinced. Let me know what your ideas are about it! Anyone do it themselves? Lets hear about it!
