Environmental Benefits

Reduce Methane Emissions

    Landfills undergo anaerobic decomposition which generates methane, whereas compost piles undergo aerobic decomposition which sequesters carbon dioxide – preventing more greenhouse gases from releasing into our atmosphere and contributing further to climate change.


    Given the rich nutrient and vitamin content of compost, this addition helps plants grow healthier and more nutritious! 

Drought Resiliency

    Placing organic material back into the soil increases its water-holding capabilities, making it more drought resilient.
