10 Things You Should Be Composting Right Now

Making compost is so easy and such a good thing to do that everyone should try it, even if they don’t have a huge yard for a mammoth compost pile.</br></br><a title="Composting Bins" href="http://www.atgstores.com/tools/lawn-garden/composting/" target="_blank">Compost bins come in all sizes</a> and anyone with just a sliver of space on their stoop or apartment balcony can make a batch for indoor plant use. Of course, if you have a yard, then you can go crazy with the compost pile of your dreams.</br></br>Either way, there are plenty of things you can use for compost. This is a list of the most common compostable kitchen items you’re throwing out that you could be using to make plant superfood.</br></br><strong>1. Coffee Grounds</strong></br></br>You probably have so many coffee grounds you could have compost made of grounds alone. Go ahead and throw that filter in there, too.</br></br><strong>2. Teabags</strong></br></br>Yep, you can compost these bag and all; watch out for any metal clips, though.</br></br><strong>3. Old Bread</strong></br></br>If you’re not into croutons, your old bread is always good for compost.</br></br><strong>4. Eggshells</strong></br></br>These are many gardeners’ secret weapon for stunning plants and flowers.</br></br><strong>5. Fruit &amp; Veggie Food Scraps</strong></br></br>Why stink up the trash bin when you can compost it instead? BUT, don’t compost meats or fatty things like mayo and dressing.</br></br><strong>6. Hair</strong></br></br>It may seem a little gross, but of course your hair is compostable. Have pets? Their hair is compostable, too.</br></br><strong>7. Yard Clippings, Leaves &amp; Dead Flowers</strong></br></br>You may not have a ton of this stuff if you’re living the city life, but even apartment dwellers can compost their wilting bouquets and indoor leaf litter.</br></br><strong>8. Crustacean Shells</strong></br></br>If you’re lucky enough to dine on lobster, crab, clams and other delicious sea life, your plants will get even luckier if you crush the shells and add it to your compost.</br></br><strong>9. Vacuum Bag Waste</strong></br></br>How convenient! Your vacuum collects compostable material that’s just lying around your house! It kind of makes you wonder when they’ll invent a vacuum that composts …</br></br><strong>10. Cotton &amp; Wool Clothing</strong></br></br>Do you feel weird when you throw socks in the trash? You should! Those can be composted if you just cut them into strips.</br></br>And, the list goes on and on, but this is a good start for you to use to start composting today. Have fun!
