This originated with me sending regular emails to my close friends and family on environmental issues and changes which could ‘green’ their lifestyle. The group has unintentionally grown quickly as friends of friends ask to join. The EcoEmails don’t always give people an easy solution to a problem but try to make them aware that every decision they make has environmental and sustainability consequences. If you would like to join pls email me at

Compost January 16, 2008

We are trying to reduce how much rubbish we send to landfill… coz it uses a lot of land and makes it good for nothing (but golf courses)…

Around 37% of household rubbish is organic (food or garden waste)…
And more than 50% of it could be composted (food, garden waste, paper and card)

Which means that we could reduce how much goes to landfill by at least over half if we all started composting…
Most my friends’ houses are not suitable to have home compost…
But if they are…

The compost can be used to put on your garden.
And it reduces the volumes of waste going to landfill and the transport costs associated with that….

Starting price around £27…
