Compost Curious? Learn about this important Community Climate Solution

By Brett Matulis

What can you do in your local community to significantly reduce climate warming emissions? Consider composting! Food waste accounts for emissions equivalent to 42 coal fired power plants in the United States. If we divert that waste into composting, we not only avoid those emissions, we create rich soil that nourishes the earth and our communities.

In this episode of Let’s Talk Climate, we hear from Marvin Hayes, Baltimore’s King of Compost, who has built a city-wide composting initiative that is aimed at increasing environmental justice, building community, and combating climate change. Listen in for inspiration and advice to set one up in your own community!
