Composting is the controlled decomposition of organic matter with oxygen, also known as recycling organic matter. Microorganisms feast on organic material that is rich in carbon, turning it into stable soil carbon that plants eat, also known as high-quality fertilizer.

In this collection, you will learn how composting works, the different types of composting at home and on an industrial level, and what the deal is with compostable products. Composting is the purest example of a regenerative disposal practice, turning something back into a natural form in order to support the growth of something new.
