5 reasons to start composting (even in the city)

4+1 reasons to start composting
(even in the city)

What is composting?   

Death and rebirth in Nature: It is the transformation that occurs on forest floor all the time. Composting is the most similar to decay. Organic materials (vegetable peelings, fruit peels, tea leaves, etc.) are broken down into minerals, and some of them are changed into humus materials in the presence of oxygen by microorganisms and other macro living species. The mature compost, often known as humus or aka black gold, is the final product of this process. 

Your plants will benefit from the nutrient-rich compost, and there is no better method to make your soil so alive/resistant/rich. It’s also wonderful for waste reduction, reduce nearly all of our green trash in the kitchen.

Why to compost? 

1. Simple, sustainable solution

Because it is the most effective strategy to reduce your household trash. Composting is one of the most significant habit you can adopt in your household to reduce waste and be more ecologically conscious. You may not be able to have a garden composter  where you live, but if you have a balcony, or live in a block of flats, you CAN compost, and even indoor in a small apartment.

Composting is critical because organic waste accounts for the majority of household waste (30-40%), and we transport it to incinerators or landfills with the rest of our garbage. This is unbelivable.

2.Observe death, decay and rebirth of your biowaste


Life is a fascinating circle, and all life on Earth is driven by the round wheel of matter. The organic matter cycle is possibly the most significant part of composting practice. Decomposing organisms break down life forms, everything formed under the sign of life, into the simplest conceivable basic parts (molecules). Without being exhaustive, decomposers make up a considerable proportion of unicellular organisms and fungi that create inorganic matter from organic or inorganic materials (without carbon-carbon and carbon-hydrogen bonds). Not to mention the laborious work of minute insects, insect larvae, spider mites, worms, and worms: without their shredding activity, the smaller decomposers would have a considerably lower surface area to attach to.

We need to acknowledge the tireless efforts of small insects, insect larvae, spider mites, worms, and worms: without their shredding activity, the smaller decomposers would have a much lower surface area to cling to on the apple tube, which would significantly slow down the collective work. 

The plants are eager for their hungry root cells to absorb the end products of decomposition, which include a wide range of inorganic substances.

3.Feasible, diverse fits into lot of kind of lifestyle

We are a lot of different people and many of us live in large cities and dont have gardens. But, believe me, there are numerous ways to compost for people in cities with a wide range of lifestyles. Composting, both indoors and outdoors, is an amazing diverse activity. Learn more about composting systems, including their advantages and disadvantages, so you can select one that works well in your home. 

We deliver multiple courses on composting process comparisons, and further information may be found in our blogposts. More information regarding composting methods in your city can be found here.

4. Nature learning / new experiental learning – 1 more good habit that you stick

As people living in cities, we’ve moved away from nature, and indoor greening and composting is an experiential learning, microbial play, recharging, wellness, and urban anxiety reliever that can only be learned with. 

Composting, like balcony and urban gardening, does not require a large financial investment, but it does take attention, forming new good habits, and tuning in. 

Composting is an experiential learning process, so while we do learn from it, such “hands-on” learning opportunities are becoming increasingly scarce in our modern environment.It’s great to see the composting process unfold with teenagers, children, or the entire family. This – slow in our world today – process can bring many new -procedure might bring many new ideas and concepts to mind.

It also aids in learning about natural processes and developing excellent habits. Let us once again learn from nature!

+1 Harvest your black gold

 Do you want to have your own black gold mine? All year long, you can turn your rotting kitchen waste into fresh, forest-scented, nutrient-rich, live, ripe compost – nicknamed black gold! 

Your plants will appreciate the nutrient-rich compost, and there is no better method to make your soil fruitful. Furthermore, it is excellent for waste reduction because it absorbs nearly all of our kitchen green trash. 

If there is too much compost created, COMPOT composters trade their good quality mature compost online, trading it for free fruit and vegetables or simply putting a smile on your neighbor’s face.

With COMPOT you can compost and garden in the city without a GARDEN. And I know there are many of us in homes without gardens and balconies. I’ve been composting indoors for 13 years in the city and have tried all the composting methods.

Together with the Hungarian Zero Waste Association and the Soil Institute we are testing COMPOT composters and we have 200 composters with whom we have made about 20,000 litres of biodegradable kitchen waste that is turned into compost instead of stinking up the bin 6000 litres of Mature COMPOT compost.

here is a COMPOT customer feedback:

“I have been a COMPOT owner for about six months. When I first assembled the three COMPOT pots, lined them with paper, added in my pre-chopped organic waste and sprinkled with the activator mix, I was so excited. It was like an experiment. Week after week I could watch all this food waste mix and transform into something natural and fresh smelling. Two months later, when I scooped out my first handful of ready-to-use humus soil, I was so proud that even I had managed to do it. Since then, I have been using my own compost along with plain vegetable and potting soil for our small garden, our potted plants and other friends’ gardens. Thank you for the opportunity.”

Of course you think that is good but you have never composted before and it seems complicated.

Don’t worry we have an all-inclusive COMPOT buyer’s guide that covers EVERYTHING from unpacking to composting and we also have open and free lectures and monthly webinars on composting.

And what can COMPOT compost and what can’t?

You can find it in our Insta stories, blog posts and FAQs on the website, or you can reach us on weekdays with your questions.
