With indoor gardens getting popular people have also started experimenting with composting in homes, making it the next big sustainability trend.
Composting which was earlier associated with farming has now developed its space withing residential places as well. Composting is being widely adopted by urban households to promote waste segregation and to maintain their in-house gardens. Composting allows you to convert most kitchen food waste including fresh fruit and vegetables, prepared foods, cooked and uncooked meats and fish, cheese, eggs, bread, coffee grinds, tea bags, wilted flowers and tissues into manure for plants. Composting can be done at various places ranging from your kitchen, balcony, terrace or roof, tabletop or sink.
Cities in India (and the world) are exploding, and so is the waste created they create. An Indian family of four produces an average of 2.2 kg of waste each day. 60% of it is organic waste which can be easily composted.
