Celebrate the first day of spring and International Earth Day with kitchen compost! Composting helps reduce methane gas by keeping food out of landfills. From banana peels to excess pulp, composting recycles Mother Nature’s bounty and reduces your carbon footprint. You can begin with just a plastic bucket and lid placed in your freezer between fills. You may empty the bucket outdoors to enrich soil, or many cities have composting centers.
