mmmmmmmm ……….might give some of them a miss I think……………
Ewwww :sick: your right Nanna, some of them I would give a miss, but alot of them I do compost (eg my hair when I have it cut) and now I know I can compost raffia, I use it to tie on my jam toppers, now I can say my whole product is recyclable. :tup:
I think they left off cotton mopheads and coir mats. 🙂
Great info.Recycling the best option to compost..
I”m surprised to see rawhide chews and dog food in there… isn’t it generally inadvisable to put meat into your compost?
And tampons?? :huh: Maybe if they’re the 100% cotton kind but I didn’t think rayon would biodegrade…
There are a few odd things there that I will not be trying! However I was checking out my neighbour’s compost and he has meat and even leftover oils and many strange things, including dead birds! He also uses sand, mostly river sand to add in every so often. He covers any meat or dead animals with a layer of lawn clippings to prevent animals getting into it. His compost looks fantastic, lots of worms. We are about to build a bigger compost and using that as an example.
I put just about everything in our compost.. dead snails, toilet rolls, dead rats, birds, mice, prawn shells, fish scraps etc but i make sure that they are not on the surface of my heap. As long as the heap heats up really well they decompose very quickly especially birds( sometimes we get a bird that has flown into the house and doesnt survive). I also invite male friends when visiting for a BBQ to pee on my heap, they all think that is quite weird but always are happy to oblige! :laugh:
