Compost: Nature's Recycling
Most waste disposal configurations include paper, plastic, metal, glass, and landfill; however, we frequently forget about how the planet recycles.
Composting is the process of putting carbon back into the environment. When food scraps breakdown, become rich soil that can be used for organic farming.
CLEAN PLASTIC ONLY: Plastic is supposed to be rinsed and free of debris before sorted into recycling. In public settings, it is inconvienient for users to clean their plastic before disposing of it, which means more often than not it will go into landfill garbage.
BEHAVIOR AT PROGRESSIVE FIELD: At the Cleveland Indians stadium, Cleveland Institute of Art did a behavioral study. For every trashcan there must be a recycling station so that people have the option to make the "right choice". The students included composting at these stations. Giving people more chances to choose recycling and composting ultimately improves impact.
