Small-space waste recycling, indoors and out
No-Waste Compostingincludes step-by-step plans for multiple small-scale indoor and outdoor composting systems that turn repurposed household items into containment systems for composting kitchen scraps and yard waste.
InNo-Waste Composting, you'll discover the hows and whys of composting and find over a dozen practical step-by-step plans for building both indoor and outdoor composting systems that require a minimal amount of space. "I don't have enough space to compost." "I don't know what's safe to compost and what isn't." "I live in the city, so I don't think I can compost." "Indoor composting systems are smelly." "I don't have a garden, so I don't need to compost." If any of these is your excuse for not composting, then this is the book for you!
Small-space composting has never been easier, more efficient, and more eco-friendly. Composting keeps millions of tons of waste out of landfills and creates carbon-sequestering, nutrient-dense compost that can be used to help fuel plant growth (including houseplants!) and build soil health.
