composting

With items made entirely from biological material;  it's best to let nature do its thing.

Composting is the best way to facilitate the natural process. 

In a nutshell...

Composting is the process of breaking down organic matter (like food scraps & biodegradable materials) into a nutrient rich soil through the natural process of decomposition.  When natural material cycles remain uncontaminated - they can recycle everything that's made by nature infinitely!

Ways to Compost

What can I compost?

Alot of the stuff from our daily lives is compostable.  Some things like food and yard waste are purely natural.  Other things like packaging, paper products, clothing, diapers and more can be designed to go back to nature.  Use this guide to figure out what’s compostable and what isn’t. (connect to a guide that best suits our bizness agenda)

Beware: Biodegradable vs Compostable

Biodegradable doesn’t necessarily mean compostable. Everything eventually “degrades”, composting is essentially a way of speeding up the process, but not everything is compostable.  This video from Sustainable Jungle breaks down the difference. 

BIOLOGICAL MATERIALS 

When biological cycles stay uncontaminated, nature does the heavy lifting for us.  With billions of years of practice under its belt, nature can breakdown and reuse everything that it creates.  

With items made entirely from biological material;  it's best to let nature do its thing.

Composting is the best way to facilitate the natural process. 

TECHNICAL MATERIALS

Technical materials are synthetic, like plastic and electronics - they were made by humans.  They are crucial to our way of life, but their artificial composition means they cannot be broken down by nature or returned to a biological cycle.

 

Technical nutrients need to be cycled through a tightly managed "techno-sphere" of synthetic materials that does not interfere with natural cycles. 

Human-made (technical) materials on the other hand do not share the convenience of letting nature take its course. 

Instead we must rely on systems of Resale, Return, Repair and Recycling to prevent our materials from becoming waste...
