Even with all the right food storage hacks, you may still find yourself dealing with some food waste. Luckily, there’s more you can do for the planet — and even help enrich the soil where your next food will grow. Composting returns nutrients to the soil to maintain quality and fertility, an all-natural fertilizer without toxic chemicals. Now, you can do it at home too, and even further reduce your food waste dumped in landfills.
To start an at-home compost pot, you need three basic ingredients: browns (dead leaves, wine corks, wood shavings and animal manure), greens (grass clippings and produce waste), and the right amount of water. Browns provide carbon, greens nitrogen, and water moisture.
But don’t just throw all types of food waste in your at-home compost mix. Canada's most common at-home composting mistakes include putting in dairy products, meat and bone scraps, seafood, acidic foods, baked goods, fat, and grease.
