As I sat here yesterday nursing a ripping head cold (thank you trip to Wellington) and researching various composting techniques I realised: I’m doing it wrong.
That mountain of tissues, all those mailers (‘Tis the season to get junk mail fa-la-la-la-la), they can be composted! Even the glossy ones? Yip, even those. Toilet rolls – in they go! I consider it good therapy to rip up those old bills and chuck them in the compost. Yeah, that’s right power company – you’re potato food now! HA!
The down side to this of course is: I’m probably going to need a bigger compost bin. It’s a small price to pay.
