• What’s so special about organic waste?

    Organic matter is a very valuable resource. Our planet is a 'balanced' ecosystem and each part relies on many other parts for its survival and the survival of the whole. Most of the life on earth is contained in the biomass or topsoil that lies on the earth's surface.

     

     

    How does composting make a difference?

     

    • By composting, we are putting the biomass into soil back rather than just taking it away. Soils play a vital role in carbon sequestration and water retention - approximately 20% of global carbon is held in the soil.
     
    • We reduce Methane gas emissions from organic waste breaking down in landfill. Methane is a greenhouse gas that is 23 times more damaging than Carbon Dioxide so food waste in landfill can contribute greatly to the greenhouse effect and climate change.
     
    • Best of all, we create a useful product that helps to grow food!
