I’m not sure if @hotpepper is aware that it’s National Composting Awareness Week, where people are made aware of composting. He was reveling in how great the snow was for his shit pile, so I’m dedicating this post to him.
In case you’ve been living in a void:
Composting is an important way to recycle — both at home and at work, where organic material is used and waste is created. It is estimated that about 50 percent of the total waste stream could be composted! Composting not only helps to reduce the amount of waste going to landfills, it produces a valuable soil amendment which can improve the texture and fertility of the soil.
Unfortunately, I live in a condo and don’t have a backyard for a compost heap, so I’ll at least do a small part and not flush my toilet this week. Maybe I can grow some mushrooms.
