Food Composting Is Key
Food composting is so easy and has such big positive impact on the environment. According to research, by composting food scraps, you not only are significantly reducing methane emissions from landfills, but also lowering the need for chemical fertilizers. What I like to do is throw any food scraps (side note: hair from the shower and used cotton balls can also be composted) into a paper bag and keep it in my freezer — this way I don't have to worry about any lingering food smells or my cats getting into it. If you do not have local compost pickup, you can usually bring it to the local farmers market for compost collection weekly.
