With our acts of kindness, I try to include projects that focus on being kind to our planet! I want to teach my children the importance of supporting the protection of our environment. We have one Earth and we need to do our part to keep it clean and beautiful!
Composting is a good way to reduce your household waste, frees up space in the landfills (organic waste makes up 30% of trash in landfills) and provides you with organic, amazingly nutritious fertilizer for your plants!
We live on an acre of property and made a simple compost pile using fencing. The key is to use 60% brown material and 40% green material, add water and make sure to turn the pile every few weeks. Compost can be ready within 3 months. More info about starting a compost pile-
Even if you live in an apartment or a house with a small yard, you can still start your own simple mini compost bin! Or if your kid wants to make their own compost bin this project is perfect! My son had a great time making the bin! He loved learning about compost and how he is doing his part in protecting our planet!
