Recycle Food waste to help the environment

Most food thrown away in Scotland ends up rotting in landfill, creating harmful greenhouse gases.  Avoiding food waste in the first place helps us tackle that.  But for food waste you can’t avoid, there’s another option.

Why not start to think about composting at home.  You can compost many items e.g.

  • Egg shells
  • Fruit and vegetable peelings
  • Teabags
  • Coffee Granules

This turns it into green energy, heat and environmentally friendly fertiliser.

At Bute Produce we run composting courses, for more details either call up to Bute produce or give the office a call on 01700 503181.
