May 3 – 9, 2020
The goal of International Compost Awareness week is to build awareness on the benefits of compost use, composting, organics recycling and how compost
can help with the environment through long-term sustainability and decreasing climate change. The theme for the 2020 Compost Awareness Week is Soil Loves Compost. Composting keeps our soil happy and it keeps our planet healthy.
Normally national events include tours of compost facilities, compost workshops on allotments and community gardens, sessions on composting for schools, talks to Garden Clubs and compost roadshows by local councils and compost bin
offers. Despite the difficult circumstances this year we can still work together to help get the message out to people and to help in suggestion activities for adults and children at home.
those already composting a chance to get help, advice and learn new techniques, whilst those who do not compost yet use the opportunity to check out composting websites and Facebook groups and our email contacts to get involved in composting as a practical
environmentally friendly activity which will improve their soil and help the environment as home composting organic waste also helps to significantly reduce carbon emissions
By composting household organic and cardboard
waste, each of us can help reduce the amount of waste going to our landfill and turn the cardboard not being collected with the green garden waste to good use in improving the soil at home.
Carry on Composting is a Leicestershire based volunteer
run website that promotes composting which will be featuring indoor and outdoor activities for children in a special Composting for Kids section.
