Abstract

Composting is an underrepresented method for combating a large number of environmental health problems. On an individual level, composting provides nutrient-rich soil that serves as an alternative to fertilizers when planting. On a broader scale, composting has the potential of removing organic waste in landfills, greenhouse gasses in the sky, dead zones in our oceans, and deforestation for agriculture. Normalizing composting in communities and inside our homes will set the path for an increasingly sustainable future.
