It's Earth Day, which gives us all a chance to consider our impact on the environment. Composting is one of the best and easiest ways to make a sustainable change to your lifestyle. Compost returns nutrients to the soil and keeps your kitchen scraps out of landfill. 

Residential waste is 40 percent compostable materials, so investing in a compost bin is a great way to reduce your waste output. Composting food waste will eventually turn it back to soil, which will improve air circulation and fertilize your garden. It will also save you money on buying soil!
