#LoveCompost - Join us for International Compost Awareness Week
Join us for International Compost Awareness Week and our #LoveCompost campaign between the 7th & 13th May. Healthy soil equals healthy food and that’s why we want to encourage as many people as possible to enjoy the magic of composting and all the environmental and financial benefits that come with using your own compost.
Making and using compost is the cornerstone of organic gardening. It's amazing how recycled garden and kitchen waste can be turned into a rich, dark and crumbly soil that's ideal for your garden. It is used to feed and condition the soil and in making potting mixes. Around 40 percent of the average dustbin contents are suitable for home composting so it helps cut down on landfill too. It's great to know that you can do your bit for the environment and save money at the same time!
Don’t panic if you've never composted before, you don’t have to be green fingered at all! Discover everything you need to know from the best composting systems to guidance on how to make your own compost on our Home Composting page.
And if you’re already composting but looking to improve what you’re currently doing, then follow us on facebook for further hints and tips and maybe share some of your own composting experience.
