Composting is an easy way to reduce waste and it also benefits plants and soil. According to StopWaste.org, you need an equal proportion of browns, greens, air and water to make compost. Browns are dry, woody materials (leaves, shrub clippings, pine needles, newspaper, etc.) while greens are moist, nitrogen-fied materials (fruit and vegetable peelings, grass clippings, weeds, and the like). Mix the browns and greens equally and make sure the compost is kept as moist as a wrung-out sponge. Once your mixture has a nice, earthy smell and appears like coffee grounds, it’s ready to be used!
