According to a University of Arizona study from January of this year, the average American add 474 pounds of food waste per year to landfills.

There are also increasing costs to transport fertilizers. According to beef magazine (a bastion of leftist thought), "During the 12 months ending in April 2008, nitrogen prices increased 32%, phosphate prices 93%, and potash prices 100%. This price surge in 2008 was due to strong domestic and global demand for fertilizers, low fertilizer inventories, and the inability of the U.S. fertilizer industry to adjust production levels."

As the economy improves, these prices will go up with greater demand and with higher fuel prices.

Tropicana Orange Juice did a study showing that 58% of their juice production came from the transportation and application of fertilizer.

So, here's my point: if you want to use less foreign oil, emit less greenhouse gas and promote local, organic food, start composting.

All you need is clean kitchen and yard scraps (no cooked food, meet or breads), a good compost bin, a nice shady place and water.

Below is my contribution to helping you find a method that makes composting easy. And, let's face it. If it ain't easy, we are not likely to do it for very long.
