Composting, the solution!

The pollution of air and water caused by landfills is on the rise every year. In fact, there has been an increase of over 20% since 1995. Every time you throw biodegradable food like meat or vegetables, you produce “Lixivia”, which is the sum of garbage juices. When it rains, this substance enters into the ground and contaminates lakes and rivers surrounding. In many countries, people die every year because they drink contaminated water, or because they don’t have access to drinking water. The emergence of methane is also very dangerous. It contributes to the thinning of the ozone layer and causes global warming. Therefore, many species like polar bears disappear. Don’t worry, there is a solution! Since few years, some cities like Gatineau, in Canada, started to compost. If everybody would do it, the pollution could stop increasing. By committing to this page, I hope that you will realize the opportunity that we all have to make of the earth a cleaner planet, by composting.
