Day 24 – Added Food Scraps to My Compost
After spending the morning making freshly squeezed orange juice, I added the pulp to my indoor compost bin.
According to the NYC Compost Project, “The average New York City household discards two pounds of organic waste each day—adding up to more than one million tons of organic material a year. When we discard this “waste,” we lose a potential resource that can help beautify our parks, gardens, and blocks…even our windowboxes and houseplants.”
That’s exactly where mine will end up – feeding my fire escape vegetable garden.
