Want to be less wasteful but don't know where to start? It might be time to try composting. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, food scraps and yard waste make up about 20 to 30 percent of what we throw away, and all of it should be composted instead. Composting has a lot of great benefits like reducing the need for chemical fertilizers and reducing methane emissions from landfills. And even if you think composting isn't for you because you don't garden or have outdoor space, there are plenty of awesome uses for the compost you create—One Green Planet has a great list of options to consider.
