GET TO HALF
Composting at SchoolOne third of the garbage we throw away every day is organic waste. Schools can easily reduce this waste by composting. Composting is not difficult, it’s actually quite easy.
Composting is a natural process that converts organic material - like food and yard waste - into nutrient-rich compost. When we compost organic waste in our schoolyards, we are creating a natural environment where decomposer organisms - like bacteria, insects, worms and fungi - can break down organic waste and recycle nutrients back into the soil.
