Back in grade school, composting would be one of the topics that’ll be touched under the umbrella of Science – especially when recycling is the point of discussion. The importance of composting will be reiterated a couple of times as it is eco-friendly and a safe way to make gardens flourish with beautiful greens and healthy-looking fruits. The factors which make composting pretty essential are more magnified these days because of the unfortunate episodes that are happening in our environment. Remembering these factors, that make composting such an important contribution to making the world a better place, can be insightful and quite refreshing.
If In Case You Were Absent OR Daydreaming…
To make things simple, composting is the process of turning organic matter that is meant for disposal into something beneficial. Basically, these organic materials will be placed in a container or pile to decompose. These materials then turn into a soil form that is rich in vitamins which has the ability to grow healthy plants in your garden. It also has the power to ward off harmful pests.
Anything that’s organic and rots can be a composting candidate. Some of these are the trimmed grasses and leaves from your garden, dried out coffee grounds, food debris and as mentioned, anything that’s organic and rots. Just be sure these are free of unfriendly chemicals.
What Makes it IMPORTANT…
Health in All Angles – Incorporating the vitamin-rich earth from the compost pit into the soil of a garden can make its plants extremely healthy. Healthy vegetables and fruits mean healthy food on the dining table. And healthy food intake basically goes with healthy human beings living a happy life.
A Blissful Mother Nature – By practicing composting, a person helps in reducing the amount of waste that is being directed to the landfills. This practically means reduction of leachate and methane release which also equates to decreasing pollution. It also cuts down the usage of chemical fertilizers that are harmful to our water supply. Thus, making our mother nature wear the widest smile.
Money Saver and Producer – Composting saves not only the household’s money but also a city’s and eventually a country’s. By composting, a household can trim down its budget for chemical-free vegetables and fruits (since these are being home-grown already) and the need for chemical fertilizers can be totally crossed-out. Less garbage being sent to a landfill also means less costing for your city and eventually for the whole country.
As for it being a money producer, organically grown fruits and vegetables nowadays are pretty much in demand on the market, which makes growing them become a lucrative source of income. Also, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a ton of high-grade compost can make one earn as much as $100. That’s literally making cash out of trash.
