Food scraps (anything edible, meat, bones, coffee grounds, egg shells, paper napkins, wooden stirrers, and more) that are sent to the landfill will break down pretty quickly, but it does so under anaerobic conditions and the process creates methane gas, which has 34x the greenhouse effect of carbon dioxide! Food scraps that are composted break down aerobically, producing carbon dioxide instead.
You make fertile soil for gardens!
34x Greenhouse Effect!!
