Did you know about 2/3 of our household trash can be composted? Instead of throwing your biodegradable scraps into the garbage, start a compost pile or get a compost bin to allow the items to naturally decompose. I know our living situations vary so I'll try to give as many options as I can.
- Build a compost pile or bin in your backyard.
- Start a vermicomposter in your home.
- Sign up for a compost pick up program in your city.
- Check your city for local compost drop off locations.
- Buy some bunnies! (just kidding....or am I?)
Is it biodegradable? Below is a list of items that are:
- Clean paper
- Fingernail and toenail clippings (I know, eww)
- Vacuum dust
- Coffee grounds
- Cotton rags
- Wool rags
- Dryer lint
- Pine needles
- Fruits and veggies
- Tea bags
- Grass and yard trimmings
- There are so many more items to list. Google the item if you are unsure. :)
