Composting Information

In 2005 it was recorded that about 16% of all solid waste in landfills was comprised of plastic materials. In an effort to cut down on unnecessary pollutants and provide consumers with a sustainable solution to this problem, the Prairie Moon Company is offering new biodegradable, recyclable, and compostable products.. These products are disposable, but can be reused and are ideal for camping trips, picnics, or parties.

Composting

Composting is the degradation and decomposition of organic substance that results in a natural biomass known as compost. Compost is beneficial to the environment because it administers nutrients and minerals back into the food chain.

Commercial Composting
There are many options for industrial composting. Facilities range from sheet composting (where the compostable material is spread along the soil where it is left to decompose) to windrow composting (where materials are made into giant rows to become compost). These facilities are intended to produce massive amounts of compost and distribute it into the food chain accordingly.

Home Composting
Home composting is creative and there are many methods of executing it. However, the most popular is probably through use of a composting bin. The bin acts as a decomposition catalyst that allows decaying materials to break down organically. The interior of composting bins is often separated into layers of soil.
