I’ve been telling myself that “I really need to start composting” for a long time. For years, actually. I’m not sure why it took me so long to get started — for some reason, I felt intimidated by it all, and thought that composting would pose a huge lifestyle change.

And once you get into the habit of being mindful about what you send to the landfill, it’s almost impossible to not make thoughtful decisions about your waste.
