I've spoken before about how much composting matters to a zero waste routine, or really just to any efforts toward sustainability. I've found composting to be pretty easy, but I've been wondering if it needs to be demystified in order to gain wider acceptance. I think there's a sense that composting is quasi-scientific, featuring precise ratios of food scraps to dead leaves and necessitating consistent tending.
While it certainly can look like this, it doesn't have to. There are so many different ways to compost, and many of them are quite easy. I've given a brief overview of some of the options for at-home composting methods before, but I thought it would be fun and interesting to see how others approach it in their lives - how they make it work, how they streamline their composting routine, their tips and tricks. So, I'll be featuring a few of these stories here in the coming months. Stay tuned for the first one, up this Thursday!
