Kitchen composting tips start when you’re preparing your meals. There is so much food waste taking place in our own homes and it is so simple to create something amazing from things that may have ended up in the garbage. But I have some kitchen composting tips that will help you keep stink and pests at bay…because who needs that in the kitchen?
What exactly is kitchen waste?
Kitchen waste is what is produced when we are preparing meals. For instance carrot peels, apple cores, tops of veggies we don’t eat (or give to the animals). Basically real food (aka not processed) scraps that would otherwise end up in our trash.
Why compost our kitchen waste?
When we compost our kitchen waste we can turn it into amazingly rich garden soil for our plants. Whether you’re going in a large garden or on your patio, compost is the “black gold” of the garden. Additionally composting scraps means less in our landfills which is better for our environment and future. Not to mention if something goes bad in the fridge, you’ll have a lot less guilt tossing it into your kitchen compost than that trash.
