Compost Awareness Week runs from the 6th to 12th May 2013. It’s all about raising awareness of waste – and how much of it we send to landfill every year.
By recycling or composting, we can ‘close the loop‘ on waste. For example, sending your biodegradable packaging to a composting facility after it’s been used, instead of throwing it in the dustbin, means that in 3 months that packaging will become compost. Compost that can be used to grow more plants. Closing the loop lets us use the world’s resources more efficiently and cut our carbon footprint.
