Learn How To Compost At Home (2021)

Do you compost at home? Did you know composting is one of the best ways to practice eco-friendly living and help reverse climate change

For many, learning how to compost at home sounds intimidating. Isn’t composting hard? It’s kind of gross, right? And isn’t it for hippies and treehuggers? Nope. Nope. And Nope! Composting is my jam!

Composting reduces municipal waste languishing in landfills, significantly cuts down on greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global warming, and replenishes the soil. Healthier soil produces better quality food, healthier plants, and even pulls more carbon out of the air to reverse global warming relative to depleted soil. 

Composting has a negative carbon footprint and increases biodiversity, meaning it actually helps to reverse climate change and make our planet healthier in so many ways! Even better, composting can be free or nearly free for almost anyone due to the many different ways we can compost, depending on our lifestyle and where we live. 

Learning How To Compost At Home Isn’t Hard

No matter if you’re new to composting, an experienced pro, or somewhere in between, I’ve got tons of resources and stories to help make learning how to compost at home easier, more effective, and much less intimidating. 

Before I started composting, it seemed entirely overwhelming. With plenty of trial and error, however, I know nearly all of us can learn how to compost in one way or another and make a positive impact on our planet and our communities. 

Join me in my effort to make composting mainstream and something modern families practice with ease. Composting isn’t new or novel. The principles have been around for thousands of years. And it’s definitely not hard once you just get started!
