Ever thought about it but never followed up because it seemed too hard? I have been composting for the past 7 years Alhamdulilallah- I do it because its good for the Earth and we will be held accountable for our actions- not that I don’t have so many other facets of my life still needing fixin’. It really isn’t that hard, I swear. It takes a little effort.

I take my:

Tea bags

Fruit and Veggie peels and scraps

Egg shells- crush them first

Cardboard egg crates- wet and crush

Wet and crush

Get your kids involved-LF#2 is my composting buddy. She helps me crush up the egg crates and throw it all into the heap.

Crushed egg carton

It is just a tall plastic tupper ware kinda container with a cover- I need to get a new one (sheepish grin)

This one is so beautiful and would fit my kitchen decor.This stainless steel one is available at the container store for 12 bucks-BINGO!
