Organics Recycling and the Return of Compost to Soils Delivers Fundamental Solution to Climate Change
Compost, The Solution to Climate Change?
European Compost Network, Composting & Anaerobic Digestion Association of Ireland, Australian Organics Recycling Association, The Compost Council of Canada, and the US Composting Council join in common voice during International Compost Awareness Week 2016 to encourage the recycling of organic residuals and compost use for improved soil health and climate change mitigation
Recycling organic residuals instead of throwing them in the garbage is the first step to capturing the full potential that these under-recognised resources can play to address a wide range of current global environmental issues. And on the occasion of International Compost Awareness Week 2016 (May 1 – 7), a global network of organisations, devoted to organics recycling and compost use, are combining their efforts to bring attention to the multiple benefits to be realised when organic residuals are viewed as resources rather than waste.
