It doesn’t take a scientist to know that we are exhausting our natural resources. We as the dominant creatures have caused so much devastation and calamity in this world in the name of greed and progress.
I will move on from whingeing to actually doing something about it. Will it really make a difference? Maybe not? But I can sleep at night. I can also stare in my children’s eyes and my children’s children’s eyes (in the future) and say I am making this world a beautiful place for you to flourish and thrive; for all creatures to flourish and thrive. That makes me happy.
So, once every week for 10 weeks, I will be writing and posting ways I can save the planet.
This week, I finally invested in a proper compost bin where I can put all food – cooked or uncooked; dairy, meat and even pet poo. The good thing is I don’t have to ‘turn’ with a shovel to help with the decomposing of the food. I just chuck it in the bin and let nature takes it course. You can visit my insta account for the unboxing of the bin. It has also been uploaded in YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54O9rwTUBbc
I actually have several compost locations in my garden. However, being a family of 5, we do have a lot of vegetable scraps and it has been piling a lot. I also have limited time to collect grass clipping and brown leaves to add to them to help with the composting.
I can’t wait to put my compost bin together and get digging to install! I will upload that video soon enough.
I hope I have encouraged you to do the same. There are a lot of way to compost your food waste. You do not need at all garden nor a balcony. There are all kinds of bin for all types of living.
