How are you doing on the food waste front? This article in the Alberton Record says that of the foods that we routinely let go to waste, “44% is vegetables and fruits, 26% is grains, 15% is meat and the remaining 13% consists of oilseeds, tubers, and roots”.

This means that pretty much 50% of this waste can be recycled by composting. Preventing food waste with better shopping (buy less and reduce unnecessary purchases) and cooking (plan meals and use what you have) planning is goal #1 – you’ll save a bundle of $$$ too. And then composting the rest in your YOLO Compost Tumbler will recycle it.
