Magic of Composting:

Composting is nature’s way of recycling organic materials. Microorganisms break down food scraps, yard waste, and other organic materials into nutrient-rich compost. This compost can then be added to your soil, improving its fertility and structure for healthier plants.

What Can Go In (and What Can't):

Knowing what goes into your compost bin is crucial for a healthy and successful compost pile. Here’s a breakdown:

Compostable Heroes:

Knowing what goes into your compost bin is crucial for a healthy and successful compost pile. Here’s a breakdown:

  • Fruit and vegetable scraps: Peels, cores, rinds, leftover bits – They’re all welcome! 
  • Eggshells and coffee grounds: These add essential nutrients to your compost.
  • Tea bags (minus the staple): The paper bags and loose tea leaves are great for composting.
  • Yard waste: Leaves, grass clippings, and shredded twigs provide brown material for a balanced compost.

Compost Villains:

  • Meat, dairy, and fish scraps: These attract unwanted pests and can make your compost smell bad.
  • Oil and grease: These can slow down decomposition and contaminate the compost.
  • Diseased plants: These can spread diseases to your healthy plants.
  • Plastic and non-biodegradable materials: These take a long time to break down and pollute your compost.

Ekvee Food Wraps: Friend or Foe?

Ekvee Food Wraps are designed to be eco-friendly, but are they compostable?

Ekvee food wrap is made from plant-based materials and can be composted in a home compost bin. However, it’s important to tear them into small pieces to aid decomposition.

Composting Tips with Ekvee:

  • Line your compost bin with newspaper: This helps absorb moisture and prevents the bin from getting messy.
  • Maintain a good balance of brown (carbon-rich) and green (nitrogen-rich) materials: This ensures proper decomposition.
  • Mix your compost pile regularly: This helps aerate the pile and speeds up the process. 
  • Use a compost bin with good ventilation: This prevents odors and attracts beneficial organisms.

Composting is a rewarding process that benefits your kitchen and the environment. By understanding what can be composted and how Ekvee Food Wraps fit into the picture, you can create a more sustainable kitchen routine.
