It is easy to adopt healthy waste practices throughout the summer, especially putting things in the composter. However, winter composting can be much more challenging because people are eating less whole foods, and they don’t want to be continually going back outside to dispose of it in the garbage.

Throughout the colder season, the compost can freeze and become less active. However, if you reduce organic waste by adding to the composter, you will still have lots of compost to use once the summer rolls around.
