When I first learned how to assemble a compost, I was so excited. I went out and bought a tumbler and I eagerly gathered leaves, twigs and food scraps. I watered and turned it regularly. Then this happened. I lost my heap that day because I failed to latch the hardware on my tumbler and I haven’t touched it since. But that’s about to change.
Not only does composting save your family money, it’s great for the environment. Truly recycling in its most natural form. By composting, your family can actually turn their waste in rich soil that’s good for the earth and your garden. If you’ve seen the price of fertilizer, you too will be excited about the prospect of making your own for free.
It takes time and effort, but I find gardening to be therapeutic and I don’t mind the work. If you purchase a tumbler like I did, the work part will be minimal. Our challenge is simple: just gather food waste like egg shells, leftover fruit and vegetable pieces and garden clipping to out compost instead of throwing it in the trash where it would end up in a landfill.
About P&G Everyday Effect:
Many people think their everyday actions are ordinary, and that the things they do every day can’t make a difference to help the environment. P&G believes the most effective changes don’t necessarily start with grand acts and can start much closer to home, by changing the way we think about things like waste.
Seemingly ordinary actions – like washing your laundry in lower temperatures, doing the dishes with concentrated products or changing a diaper that uses thinner materials – can be a surprising help to the world we share… allowing us all to reduce waste.
