Celebrating International Compost Awareness Week: Promoting Year-Round Composting!

International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry. It is celebrated nationwide and in other countries each year during the first full week of May. The goal of ICAW is to work together to raise public awareness on why we all should be composting our organics and using compost to create healthier soil!

As we celebrate International Compost Awareness Week, it's crucial to remember that composting isn't just a one-week affair—it's a sustainable practice we should embrace year-round. Composting not only reduces waste but also enriches soil, conserves resources, and minimises greenhouse gas emissions.

Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned composter, there are various methods to explore. Bokashi composting offers an efficient way to compost food scraps using beneficial microorganisms. Worm composting, or vermicomposting, involves using worms to break down organic matter into nutrient-rich compost. Traditional garden composting involves layering organic materials like kitchen scraps, yard waste, and leaves to create nutrient-dense soil.
