Composting is really easy with your own compost bin. You'll be able to create an unlimited supply of free organic fertilizer – perfect for promoting healthy growth in your plants and flowers. You can compost almost all organic waste, from teabags to vegetable peelings, that you would otherwise just throw away.
Our compost bins are designed in all shapes and sizes to suit all manner of composting needs. They range from compact plastic options, which are ideal for limited spaces, to innovative removable-slat wooden compost bins for easy wheelbarrow access. We even offer handy kitchen compost bins to make collecting food scraps easier than ever.
Composting is also brilliant for the environment. The process allows natural decomposition of organic waste instead of creating harmful methane gas like landfill sites. You'll reduce your carbon footprint and you'll get nutrient-rich compost as an added bonus.
In a landfill site biodegradable organic matter such as food, paper, cardboard, textiles, and garden waste will be broken down (decomposed) by microbes to produce a mixture of carbon dioxide (CO²) and methane. Methane is a very damaging greenhouse gas - weight for weight it is more damaging than carbon dioxide.
In cutting down the amount of biodegradable waste you send to landfill sites you can effectively help minimise the amount of methane emitted into the atmosphere. Instead, try composting at home or at a community level, or send your waste to a special anaerobic digestion facility.
