A circular economy exchanges the typical cycle of make, use, dispose. Instead of discarding products once finished, the circular economy allows a new lifecycle and repurpose for those throw-away items. Composting and recycling are simple examples of a circular economy.

Consumers are understanding more and more that food scraps and eco-friendly packaging possess natural and valuable resources that can form new purposes once their typical lifecycle expires.

Composting is a process that facilitates the natural decomposition of organic matter, resulting in a nutrient-rich fertiliser or soil support. Food scraps, organic waste and garden clippings make for excellent composting components. Once the composting process in underway, microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria and actinomycetes go unnoticed in your compost pile, all the while they are responsible for most of the organic material breakdown.

So why is a circular economy so important? Repurposing our resources is a vital step to reducing waste, decreasing landfill, depleting methane gas production, and sustaining a thriving environment and ocean. Implementing your own circular economy at home or in your workspace can make a huge difference to our environment. It is a surprisingly little-known fact that food scraps disposed of in landfill will create methane gas which has a global warming impact 26 times that of carbon dioxide.

Throughout Australia waste management companies are offering organic waste collection services residentially and commercially. The collection of organic waste is then taken to industrial composting facilities to be transformed for another useful purpose. Consumers and hospitality services now have an effortless and inexpensive way of contributing to the circular economy.
