What is Valuable About Composting?
By Clifford Woods
Over the course of human history and pretty much as far back as civilization stretches, composting has been used a means by which to grow food and enrich gardens. Sadly however, ever since mass-scale farming took over several decades ago, the practice has declined all over the world and there is less emphasis put on the importance of composting than ever before.
This is something that simply has to change for the future, and thankfully looks like it’s once again heading in the right way.
A Rebirth for Composting: Nowadays, people are becoming more and more aware not only of what they are using around the home and the garden, but also what they are putting into their bodies and the effects their actions have on the environment. As such, the idea of composting has once again become a discussed point and people are realizing just how positive and beneficial this truly ancient practice can be and how much it really benefits our environment.
Even the most simple of endeavors like natural composting at home with the use of a single container for food scraps and organic waste is having a massively beneficial effect on the planet, helping to the reduce the need for landfills and other kinds of waste disposal. With the slightest effort, composting can lead to significant cash savings, benefits to health, positives for the garden and a beneficial boost to the environment all at the same time.
Getting Into the Habit: In order to be effective, those looking to compost at home need to “get into the habit” to a point where recycling their organic waste becomes natural, and not something they actually have to think about.
To work properly, effective composting at home needs to be part of a “lifestyle” and is an on-going process. Once these habits have been instilled however the benefits are too numerous to count, though include the following among others:
Value of Composting:
- Production of an excellent product to boost the growth of organic fruits, vegetable and herbs at home – guaranteed to be 100% free of chemicals and harmful additives.
- A free form of fertilizer that costs nothing – the waste will already be present as a part of everyday life, so why not put it to use?
- An excellent alternative to use with 100% safety in environments where children or pets may be present.
- A simple way of getting rid of refuses and waste from the garden, which may not be allowed in standard collections.
- A means by which to reduce overall wastage and thus conserve landfill space.
Going about natural composting around the home essentially represents nothing more than common sense. After all, to overlook composting value and continue to throw out perfectly good organic matter only to go and pay good money for compost at the store is money poured needlessly down the drain.
Effective composting can be child’s play and there’s no reason not to get the kids involved from an early age and begin instilling good habits for life.
That being said, it’s never too late to get started and begin making a difference.
