What is composting, and what are the benefits of composting?

Composting is a natural breakdown of material into rich soil. Composting organic waste (yard trimmings, food waste, etc.) helps divert organic waste from landfills. When added back to land projects, compost promotes healthy plant growth, improves soil moisture retention, amends sandy/clay soils, and improves crop nutrient content.

It is designed to be easily recognizable and able to be placed on the actual product and packaging and sales literature.
