Composting at home Composting itself, so you. Your own compost or in what terms you can take it, but at its core is about the responsibility of owning through composting The use of home waste contributes to your garden and floor with many advantages. As gardeners, it is our duty spread awareness about this week composting .
Let some of the statistics have a look first. In 06, a specific poll on "Statistics Canada" was carried out and this survey revealed some very interesting results. According to his findings, nearly 98% of the residents of "Prince Edward Iceland" composting are active. In the "Nova Scotia", this percentage was reported 95 percent.
There is only depicted an inverted image of another survey. In 'Portland, Oregon' efforts have been made in nearly a decade composting popularize. A special public awareness campaign was completed with the sale of more than 0,000 plastic composters. Despite all these efforts, only 30% of households began their kitchen waste composting . the Alameda County in California is normally show as compost-crazy among gardeners in the United States. Statistics show that nearly 24% of homeowners are in this county also actively composter in their gardens.
results of these statistics may be moderately satisfactory for many of us, but then the question unanswered as why response will not find many other gardeners? garden experts, educators and most scientists remain over still working an answer to find on this question.
However, a recent study in Scotland carried out makes attempts to understand the behavioral patterns among gardeners and homeowners. This study is titled as "Behavioral Determinants of household participation in a Home Composting Scheme".
" It's all about the setting ", revealed the results of this study. Buzzwords such as the environment, good gardening practices to save, and others would never attract a person who is a non-composter to bring the tools. Instead, if the person convinced somehow that to a good man and man are composting, must always work. You can easily find a compost bin to such a confident person. " to a composter in a non-composter converting takes just a setting change ", according to the study.
Some of the other carried out in past studies also underline the importance of habits of active composter. Use the active composter generally almost 70% of their food waste into compost to make . These people also do active recycling or composting all their garden waste also.
It is a fact that in almost every case , once a person starts composting it never stops . According to data collected by several studies, nine out of ten people start composting keep the habit, even after ten years away or more. The study results also demonstrate a specific pattern among the composter. It is to make very often try two or more kinds of composts among them. One is a
heap, and another is a closed vessel.
Let us all feel responsible and in every possible way help people to help organizations and communities to spread awareness about composting. "The International Compost Awareness Week" is the best opportunity to begin this task.
