Compost Awareness Week

International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry. It’s celebrated each year in the first full week of May. Although Compost Awareness Week may look different for each of us this year, collectively we can still make small changes in our backyards through composting that will have lasting impacts on our environment.

2021 Compost Awareness Week
May 2-8

Join us for a week full of online workshops and education promoting the benefits of composting and the environmental importance of diverting organic waste from our landfills.

The theme for ICAW, “Grow, Eat, COMPOST, Repeat”, highlights the circular movement of the organics recycling process. Nature’s recycling leads to healthy soils. Whether small or large in scale, composting offers each of us a responsible way to manage our organic waste, make our soils rich to grow healthier food, all while protecting our environment.

We encourage you to visit us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram during the week for tips and information to support composting at home.
