Composting and reducing our waste

 When you toss that banana or that paper towel into the trash, did it ever occur to you that it could help your soil and work for you? Composting everything from your egg shells to your paper towels could make your garden grow?
Even the waste from some of your animals can be a wonderful food for the worms and enzymes that break it down into beautiful black gold compost!
If you go up on the web, you can search on how to make an easy compost bin with pallets or even hay bales!
Our waste is so important to basic sustainability. In the picture, I had just dumped my rabbits used litter. We use pelleted newspaper which is very compostable! Other types of things we toss out each day that can be added is coffee grounds (and the filter too!), eggs shells, vegetable scraps, used tissues, newspaper and so on! We CAN cut down on what is tossed into the land fills daily! Turning the compost pile from time to time can net the most nutritious soil for your garden.
