Composting is a great way to reduce the Carbon Footprint of your home and minimise the amount of compostable waste that ends up in landfill.
Much of the waste that ends up in household bins in Australia could be transformed into nutrient rich compost and used in gardens or agricultural land. When these items are disposed of into landfill, they may produce greenhouse gas emissions, but when composted they have many great benefits. Did you know that using compost on land can help reduce the need for additional water? If you are confused about what can go in compost, many local councils have great guides on how to start your own compost bin, even in an apartment.
Packaging waste is another large producer of landfill waste - this includes takeaway containers, plastic bags and cosmetics. Many companies are moving towards recyclable and even compostable packaging to help reduce this massive amount of waste ending up in landfill. Compostable packaging can feed your garden in the process!
Finding eco-friendly packaging that will easily break down in compost doesn't need to be hard - below are our favourites products which come in sustainable, biodegradable packaging.
