Did you know that most of what you throw away is not in fact garbage, but a highly reusable resource? The majority of this waste takes a long, fossil fuel-powered trip to the landfill where, as it slowly breaks down, it emits methane. Methane is over 20 times more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide (CO2) and is equal to around 20% of the carbon pollution output of coal-fired power plants in the United States. Composting keeps those organic materials in production, helps to revitalize and fertilize poor soil, and reduces your carbon footprint.
Let the Farmer Pirates turn your trash into nutrient filled compost to be used by local farmers & gardeners.
Composting benefits everyone by:
- Saving landfill space
- Supporting local businesses
- Supporting sustainable agriculture
- Improving soil and plant fertility
- Improving soil structure and minimizing the need for chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides
