Waste Management And Climate Change: How The Earth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26" x 44" - Clear Can Help
Lots of factors go into the process of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. They involve making changes to our everyday lives, to have a net positive impact on the environment. Governments, corporates, to private citizens- we each have a role to play. While many of the strategies require large capital changes, from infrastructural to the transport choices that we pick and types of cars purchased, the simple aspect of waste management requires little involvement. When it comes to recycling and composting, for most cases the systems are already set up, and all that is needed is incentives for people to segregate the waste for when it will be collected. On the broad scale, actions such as scaling down on coal power plants, reducing your normal car usage, and setting up ways to save on electricity consumption in the home may seem to be a lengthy process, while composting and recycling are easy actions, and quickly accessible. They can be done immediately, on a daily basis, and still make significant difference in climate change. The Earth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26" x 44" - Clear have been developed to aid with the composting efforts.
How composting reduces greenhouse gases
Here, the main factor is avoiding the generation of methane gas. When organic matter- from paper products to food waste, is disposed of in landfills, it still gets to biodegrade. However, the lack of sufficient oxygen will cause this degradation to take place anaerobically. This is because the growing mountains of trash cut off the oxygen supply to the organic waste that is buried under the waste. The microbial action on organic waste causes methane to be produced. The heat-trapping capacities of this gas are dozens of times greater than carbon dioxide, resulting more global warming. Preventing the organic waste from ending up in the landfills in the first place prevents the methane production. Instead, the waste is taken to composting facilities. For this, the food waste, paper products and other organic matter is disposed of in units like theEarth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26" x 44" - Clear, awaiting collection by the garbage collection crew who will take it to the industrial composting sites.
When the biomass produced during the composting process is reintegrated back into the soil, it brings various benefits. Firstly, it buffers the soil's pH. It has a stabilizing effect on the pH, making it more conducive for plant life and the organisms that reside in it. The compost adds micronutrients and macronutrients to the soil, and even prevents leaching, by helping the soil retain the nutrients. This promotes organic plant growth, with reduced reliance on artificial fertilizers and pesticides- thus simultaneously reducing the greenhouse effect that is associated with the methods. Organisms like nitrogen-fixing bacteria and earthworms get to thrive in this soil. The compost improves the water retention capacity of the sandy soil, and when it comes to the clay soils it enhances the drainage.
What goes into the compost bin?
The material tossed into the Earth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26" x 44" - Clear ranges from paper waste, bits of cardboard, dried leaves, fruit peels, vegetable waste, coffee grounds, tea bags, and garden waste like grass cuttings and soft pruning. Corn cob centres, eggshells, flowers, nutshells- they can all be included in the waste that will be composted. The high strength resins of the material of the Earth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26" x 44" – Clear enables them to hold in this waste without getting torn right through. That way messes like where the gooey food waste gets spilled into the bin or onto the floor when the bin bag is being lifted are avoided.
Since the product is clear, the waste that is tossed into it will be visible, which goes a long way in preventing confusion amongst the customers and employees on the premises. Coupled with proper labelling of the bin, it ensures that they only toss organic waste into it. This goes further to increase awareness amongst the persons on the premises. It will also be easy to spot items that shouldn’t be in the Earth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26" x 44" – Clear, and make the sorting process carried out by the garbage collection crew a breeze.
