What Composting Does For The Environment
Compost keeps carbon dioxide in the ground
Using BK ROT Compost is a cheap and effective way to reduce the effects of climate change by restoring the health of degraded soil and feeds plants that divert excess carbon into the ground through photosynthesis.
Compost prevents water pollution
The micro-organisms in compost can bind with fertilizers and heavy metals in the soil, which helps to prevent them from leaching into groundwater and other waterways.
Compost reduces soil erosion
The USDA estimates that more than 2 billion tons of fertile topsoil is lost each year to erosion from storms, droughts, and construction projects. Compost helps prevent the dislodging of soil particles and increases the plant growth and soil cover needed to make sure topsoil isn't lost.
