Recycling and composting are two great ways to keep materials out of landfills, minimizing one’s environmental impact. But is one necessarily better than the other? We will dive into that question and more in this blog post.

Recycling

This involves taking manufactured products that might otherwise be considered waste and converting them into a new use. As explained by SFGate, recycling allows those products to be broken down into raw materials again. Recycling can be accomplished on either a city-wide or individual basis. Keep in mind that when consumers purchase recycled products, the environment reaps the benefits. This is because less energy goes into the creation of products from recycled materials as opposed to products manufactured from raw materials being used for the first time.

Environmental Benefits

Consider that when more folks recycle, less space is taken up at the landfill. Increased recycling also allows us to hold back on extracting precious raw materials such as trees and minerals, for example.

Composting

Now that we’ve touched on recycling, let’s dig a little deeper into composting. This process turns the organic waste one creates into a useful product. When materials such as organic food waste and small yard trimmings come together with air and water, the process of decomposition takes place. You may remember from science class that compost provides a nice boost for plants, soil, and other gardening purposes. Similar to recycling, composting can take place at the individual level all the way up the municipal level.

Environmental Benefits

Essentially, composting gives back to the earth from which its basic materials came. From soil enrichment and remediation to erosion control, it’s safe to say that Mother Nature appreciates composting.

At Earth 2 Earth, we’re all about reducing, reusing, and recycling. With that comes the countless benefits of composting.
