Part 3 of 3: How to Reduce Food Waste | Composting

Welcome back to our final installment of "How to Reduce Food Waste" with Two Pillars! In this post, we'll be talking about composting, the ultimate way to turn your food waste into a useful resource for your garden or plants. Let's dive in!

Composting is a great way to reduce the amount of food waste that ends up in landfills. By composting, you can create a nutrient-rich soil amendment that will improve the health of your garden or plants. Plus, it's super easy to do with Two Pillars products!

First, let's talk about the Swedish Dishcloth. These all-natural cloths are perfect for cleaning up any food scraps or residue before they go into your compost bin. And the best part? They're compostable themselves, so you can toss them in the bin once they've reached the end of their life.

Next up, the ZipBag®. These reusable silicone storage bags are great for storing your food scraps until you're ready to compost. Just toss your fruit and vegetable scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds, and more into the bag and store it in your freezer until you're ready to compost.

Now, let's move on to the actual composting process. You can compost both indoors and outdoors, depending on your living situation. If you have an outdoor space, you can create a compost pile or bin in your yard. If you live in an apartment or don't have access to outdoor space, you can use a compost bin designed for indoor use.

Once you have your compost bin set up, it's time to add your food scraps! Be sure to mix in "brown" materials like dried leaves, newspaper, or cardboard with your "green" food scraps to create a balanced compost pile. The Duo Cover® can even be used as a lid to keep your compost pile covered and moist.

Finally, let's talk about the UniLid®. This universal lid is perfect for keeping your compost bin covered and sealed, which will help prevent any odors from escaping. Plus, the food tracking feature allows you to keep track of when you added each new batch of scraps to your compost pile.

Composting is a great way to reduce food waste and create a useful resource for your garden or plants. And with Two Pillars products, it's easier than ever to get started! Plus, it's a great eco-friendly gift idea for any occasion, from birthdays to Father's Day to Valentine's Day. So what are you waiting for? Start composting today!
