How To Compost In An Apartment

Published on February 11, 2021 by   ·   No Comments Pin It

We all want our homes to be more eco-friendly, but for those who live in an apartment, truly green living can seem impossible, or difficult at times. Whether your apartment building doesn’t recycle, or you don’t have a balcony to grow a garden, the smaller space can be a barrier for sustainable living.

One thing that you can do to contribute less food waste, is creating your own compost. Compost is a natural process through which organic material (like food scraps) is converted into a soil-like product. The result is a fertilizer you can use in your garden, donate to a farmer’s market or add to your potted plants! Food waste is a big problem in the United States as every time we throw food away, it creates methane gas. Composting not only puts less CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, but can actually reverse it!

To get you started, the folks at Zolo have created a visual guide to composting in an apartment building. All you need is a small space under your sink to store your compost bin, and by following their steps it won’t smell or attract pests!

Learning how to compost in an apartment is a great way to spend extra time at home by doing something good for the planet.
