Homeowners are now turning composting to reduce their carbon footprint and become more environmentally friendly.

Not only will it help you become more aware of how much waste you generate, it will also give you that fulfilment that you have gone the full circle in the recycling process.

The benefits of composting are numerous from the financial, environmental and health perspectives.

To kick start this valuable habit and lifestyle, here are the different ways that composting will benefit you, your garden and the environment.

1- Enriches soil, helping retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests.

2- Reduces the need for chemical fertilizers.

    3- Encourages the production of beneficial bacteria and fungi that break down organic matter to create humus, a rich nutrient-filled material.

    4- Reduces methane emissions from landfills and lowers your carbon footprint.

    5- Save money by reducing your water bills (compost helps plants retain more moisture which means reduced watering). It also aerates the soil and prevents bacteria and other plant diseases minimizing or eliminating the need to purchase and use chemical fixes.
