Any Composters Out There?As far back as I can remember, I always attempted to implement as many environmentally-friendly practices as I could. Yes, I know. Let's not talk about my mode of transportation. My eyes are locked on a Prius. I've recycled my aluminum cans and paper for ages. I've also attempted to reduce and reuse routine items, too. When we hit the local Dominick's and Trader Joe's, we ask for paper, not plastic. We've also used swirly bulbs for years.
Two years ago, when we purchased our house in Elmhurst, I bought an electric mower. It's chargeable and doesn't need a cord when mowing. Carbon footprint lowered. Last spring, we bought a share in a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). We received fresh vegetables each week delivered from a farm outside Rockford. Carbon footprint reduced again. Even though we make the most of our vegetables each week, we did notice a lot of waste from food preparation. Standard kitchen stuff. Susan decided we should try composting.
The time has come to start. Does anyone have experience with composting? I've been reading a number of sources online and in stores, but I have noticed differences in opinions. We have started collecting, but any helpful hints or recommended sources would be greatly appreciated.
