We just got a composter. So we might be late in the game but I figure that it is never too late. We also dig gardening (fresh herbs and and some other yummy things) in our "postage stamp" of a back yard. Should be fun if only for the exercise
Of course we do, but the compost is great for the garden.Don't you have a "green" recycling bin in your area? We've had one in Mississauga for a couple of years now. All the food stuff and other organic stuff (tissues, wood, plants, etc.) goes into the green bin and gets picked up with the other recyclables.
So you were already reducing your carbon footprint before, unless you weren't using your green bin? It took us a while to warm up to the green bin, we didn't use it for the first six months at all, but now I put everything I possibly can into there. There was a time when we were putting out 2 or 3 full garbage bags per week, but now we are down to one! So we're recycling maniacs now!Of course we do, but the compost is great for the garden.
