All of the fruit and veg peelings and scraps from cooking, plus any paper or card packaging, find a new home in our hungry compost bin.
Last year my daughters grew cabbage, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes and squash – plus beautiful sunflowers, gladioli, marigolds, lavateria, nasturtiums and pansies – using the compost made from cooking scraps.
No plant matter goes to landfill. Anything that can be recycled is recycled. Almost all of the ingredients I buy comes in zero, paper or recyclable packaging.
