Bangalore has no space for it’s garbage

11 April 2016

The garbage crisis in Bangalore gets out of hand, and we are far from finding a useful solution. The villages around us loose their tolerance towards taking any more of our smelly waste. Maybe this problem wouldn’t exist if we could compost all our wet waste.

So much Compost ! But what's the use ?

12 April 2016

If you have even a single outdoor plant or tree, you have use for home composting as a soil amendment. But perhaps you're having trouble finding a use for all of your compost with limited space. Here are a few ideas of what you can do with your extra compost:

  • Replant any potted houseplants (these need to be repotted every few years anyway)
  • Use it on the plants around your apartment complex
  • Donate the rest to a gardening enthusiast or community garden
  • Give a gift to the Earth (and your neighborhood) by placing the finished product around the plants in a public area.

But whatever you do, don't throw away what could benefit our ever eroding soils. Sustaining the soil - not just our own backyard soil - should be a community priority and home composting is the key!
