Did you know that 30 MILLION tons of table scraps are thrown away every year -- and they don't break down in landfills? Uh, yeah, neither did I. However, that 30 million tons of waste can become 30 million tons of beautiful soil... see how (and learn how to compost at home!):  

Wow. I hadn't thought much about composting until I saw this!

 No we do not.  We have here what they call green bins - this is where our organics go and are collected by the region.

Yes, we do.

We have the three-bin method, where each bin is in a different 'cycle' of decomposition.

There is no smell, and our soil is AMAZING.

People are lazy filthy slobs towards our earth, IMO.

Then they were doing it wrong.

I personally don't. But where I work we do. I don't enjoy it to much cuz of how gross it can be sometimes. But I give props to those who do it. I mean thats alot of work in a way to do. Expecially if you have children. To get them to do it also. Way to go. If i had the imbtion to do such a thing i perhaps maybe would. But it is awesome that people do it.

I have been composting for the last 3 years. I love it! I don't till my garden anymore, I only do raised beds with my compost. I can't believe more people don't do it!

We have one too (with blue worms).  So true about the smell and best fertilizer ever.
