Compost: Your Elaboration

1. What is compost?

Compost exists since there is life on Earth, anything live to die if left in the ground will rot in aerobic way (with the presence of oxygen). More effective agents of decomposition are bacteria and other microorganisms. Already at a macroscopic level are the worms of the Earth, ants, snails, slugs, millipedes, Woodlice, etc. who consume and degrade organic matter.

The compost is used as fertilizer for the soil in agriculture and gardening; and helping to control the erosion, as coatings and recovery of soils in landscaping.

Composting is an activity that requires some effort when it comes to emptying our composter, but it is gratifying seeing your garden’s soil improvement. It is an ecological activity because you recycle part of the waste produced in our homes. Furthermore, you make the most of your wastes possibilities, that otherwise would go to less sustainable wastelandfills, incinerators, etc., means little sustainable waste valorisation.
