Conclusion Creating compost is the easiest way to reduce kitchen waste and tidy it up. It is a natural process, and it will boost the quality of the soil while gardening. Since it is organic, the produce from gardening will also be organic and free of any toxicity. Composting is very beneficial to the earth as well as to us.
By reading this write-up children can try making compost in the house. This compost making is having multiple benefits. The domestic waste that is being processed by civil authorities will come down if we use the same for compost making on our own. That will save a lot of manpower and money for local bodies.
We should be careful while collecting materials required for compost making. No plastic waste should find its way into the waste we are using for making compost. These plastics are non-degradable and maintain their identity even after a long time. So we should sort out the waste before we use it.
