Spring into action – Compost Awareness Week is here


Planting flowers in compost (large version)‘Pass it on’ and community spirit is the theme of this year’s Compost Awareness Week, which runs from today (1 May) until 7 May 2011.

To support this, we’re encouraging you to pass on your home composting and gardening tips to family, friends, neighbours and your local community.

We’re also running a series of composting clinics to teach you how to get started or how to do a little bit more – click here to find your nearest. Any keen gardeners are welcome to come along and pass their composting tips to us too!

Home composting is an inexpensive, natural process which is much better for the environment than sending uncooked kitchen and garden waste to landfill, where it can generate methane – a greenhouse gas more powerful than carbon dioxide.

To put your scraps to good use, we’ve also teamed up with bin manufacturer Straight Plc to provide a range of compost bins, kitchen caddies and water butts at bargain prices – read more here.
