Restoring Our Land, One Compost at a Time: Celebrate World Environment Day with #GenerationRestoration

We're joining millions around the globe in celebrating World Environment Day! This year's theme is all about land restoration, desertification and drought resilience. So we're excited to share how composting can play a huge role in tackling these challenges. 


The Scoop on Composting and Land Restoration

You might be wondering, "How does my compost bin at home help restore the land?" Well, let’s break it down:

1. Enriches the Soil: Composting turns your kitchen scraps and yard waste into nutrient-rich humus, which acts as a natural fertiliser. This boosts the health of the soil, making it more fertile and capable of supporting lush vegetation.

2. Reduces Soil Erosion: Healthy soil from composting is less likely to be washed away by rain. This means your compost is not just helping your garden thrive but also preventing soil erosion, a major player in desertification.

3. Improves Water Retention: Compost enhances the soil’s ability to retain water. In regions prone to drought, this is a game-changer. Better water retention means plants can survive longer periods without rain, making them more resilient to drought conditions.


Composting: A Step Towards Drought Resilience

Desertification and drought can leave vast landscapes barren and lifeless. By composting, we’re building a foundation for healthier soils that can better withstand these harsh conditions. Here's how:

  • Boosts Plant Growth: The nutrients in compost support plant growth, and more plants mean more shade and better moisture retention in the soil.
  • Reduces the Need for Chemical Fertilisers: Chemical fertilisers can damage soil health over time. Composting provides a natural alternative that keeps the soil ecosystem balanced and thriving.
