Practically Green Vlog: Compost

What you NEED to know about composting:
  • Requires little space and can be done conveniently in your kitchen
  • Place compost so that it is convenient to use
  • EASY and odor-free
  • Enriches soil and prevents pollution
  • "Compostables" = Green materials & Brown materials
  • Efficient compost will continue to break down even in cold temperatures
For more great information, check out the Environmental Protection Agency's website (search "compost").


  1. I would love to compost - it's something I am sure I will start eventually...being in an apartment, I feel it's kind of hard to do...plus I don't have any outside space or even plants, but that's also no excuse! I will figure it out eventually!

  2. We're doing out first compost bin this year. Thanks for the tips!

  3. We just started composting for our garden. I'm still working on making it a habit, but we're getting there!

  4. I just purchased my chicken wire and lumber and will be building my very own compost bin. I can't wait. Thanks for the advice and the excellent video.
