Why is this good for the planet?

Benefits of a Plant-Based Diet

Animal agriculture contributes significantly to the greenhouse gas emissions causing global warming.

Modern livestock farming practices pollute the air and waterways, and when forests are cleared for pastureland, it diminishes the earth's ability to trap carbon from the atmosphere, further accelerating the climate crisis.

Each day you maintain a plant-based diet, you save 1100 gallons of fresh water, 45 pounds of grain otherwise fed to animals, 30 sq ft of forestland from being cleared, 20 lbs CO2 equivalent from being emitted into the atmosphere, and one animal’s life.

Benefits of Home Composting

Americans produce hundreds of millions of tons of trash every year, and food waste & yard debris account for a third of it.

When organic waste enters a landfill, it becomes a problem, because as it decomposes it releases methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

When food waste is composted, it becomes a resource instead -- one that improves soil quality and the nutrient density of new food it's used to grow.

Composting with worms (vermicomposting) is one of the simplest, most effective ways to make a BIG positive impact on the environment.

You can maintain your bin indoors, without any odor. It's simple, low-maintenance (because the worms do most of the work for you), and you can have incredibly rich compost within weeks of starting!

It's also a fun, family-friendly activity with lots of built-in lessons for kids, like decomposition and microbiology, protecting the environment, and taking care of living critters.
