Make Your Own Compost

While we would love for everyone to have an EcoSan composting bin in their backyard, an easier way to break into the wonderful world of composting is to transform your kitchen food scraps into rich soil nutrients. Composting is a small thing we can all do to help mitigate the effects of climate change.  Did you know that adding compost to the soil helps absorb and store carbon, balancing out carbon emissions from industry?  And best of all you can take those disgusting stinky food scraps and transform them into amazing plant food, making the world more beautiful and safer for future generations.

Here are two great resources to get you started:

1. DIY Life: Create a Compost Pile in Your Backyard


2. CA Recycles: Building Your Own Compost Bin

And if you do get to the point of wanting an EcoSan composting system to transform toilet wastes into rich, organic compost… check out the SOIL Resources page!

With compost, your home-grown spinach could look like ours!

    Happy to announce that I have already started a composting barrel for my food scraps and dead leaves. It is a slower process than a compost bin but quite adequate for my needs.

    Will forward this mail to David to vote for SOIL in the conservation contest. SOIL deserves the recognition and the prize money!

    Blessings to all,
