We mean it. Reuse what you've got! Its easy once you get the hang of it. Almost anything can have an alternative use or can be repurposed into something else. Here are some top tips for reusing what you've got!
Food waste makes up to 25-50% of waste that people throw away. By composting that waste you feed all of those wonderful nutrients back into the soil.
#2 Grow It Yourself!
Growing your own produce means you know exactly where your food comes from, it’s chemical-free and it is the best feeling to have a plate full of something you grew with your own hands. We promise you will reap the rewards!
#3 Use Those Banana Skins
Bananas are full of potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and nitrogen, so they provide SO much nutrition for the soil. Leave banana skins to soak inside water for 3 days and voila, you've got your own organic fertilizer. Pour it onto your plants, then cut the skins and bury them in soil.
