- All of our food, including animal products and processed foods, originates from the earth. We can trace our food back to its original form, and from there back to the soil. This illustrates the importance of healthy soil. When we send our biodegradable materials to the landfill, we waste valuable nutrients that the soil needs to give new life. Through composting, we recycle our biodegradable materials and give them back to the soil. Compost feeds the billions of soil organisms that are essential in healthy soil. Healthy soil means healthy plants. Healthy plants mean healthy people and animals. Composting is natures way of recycling.
