Winter Kitchen Composting - February 2023
I used a compostable bag to line the bin, but it was *so* compostable that it had already started to break down in the bin and started to leak. So, I hauled the whole bin out there and dumped it on the top of the carbon bin. Here's what that looked like:
The USDA and the EPA says that food waste is the single largest category of items that go into landfills - which then create a bunch of methane emissions. I understand why that motivates some folks. I do.
But, it feels so far-off (in terms of outcomes) to me. That's...maybe a nice side benefit. But, composting is a choice. It *is* easier to just toss in the trash.
What's the primary benefit (for me)? To get me back in the composting game?
Black gold, baby! Black gold.
If I can make more compost and speed up the process by adding nitrogen (greens via food waste), what's not to like. That mean....I can spend less $$$ in buying it. That's motivation enough for me.
