Reduce, Reuse, Compost

Do you know that composting is one of the most effective measures to reduce our waste?

40% of your garbage bag is organic waste. However, in our current management system, these wastes are wasted in landfills or incinerators, dramatically increasing greenhouse gases and other toxic gases.

If we separate organic waste as we do with other materials, we would reduce all waste in landfills by almost half and avoid unnecessary burning of them. In order to move towards zero waste, there are already municipalities that are committed to the selective separation of organic waste through the 5th container or door-to-door.
