Composting. It sounds intimidating, but it's not nearly as difficult or expensive or complicated (or gross!) as it may sound. In fact, the truth is: composting is totally possible and more approachable than you think. With food scraps making up 30% of what is thrown away in landfills, composting is not only possible, it’s also very important and helpful.

1. Start simple: Full Circle, a sustainable home care brand that believes even the littlest changes can have the biggest impact, has launched the Scrap Sack. It is perfect for first-time and non-committal composters. It has a wide opening for easy filling and is 100% compostable and leak-proof, thanks to its plant-based film.

2. Get tossing: Easily throw your fruit and veggie scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds (and more!). Don’t throw in any oils or fats like cooked food, dairy, meat or fish, or labels. Check out the EPA site for a full guide of what you can and cannot put in a home compost here.

3. Compost your compost bag: You can just toss the whole bag once it’s full in your home pile, tumbler, or through your local community. Your local Department of Sanitation might have a compost pick-up program and there may be a drop-off at your farmers’ market. If your community participates in a large-scale composting program, you may be able to compost even more than what is listed above.
