That’s the message going out to the UK population this Compost Awareness Week (Sunday 4th May to Saturday 10th May) with the aim to increase awareness of compost in the wider community and highlight its many benefits and applications, particularly for use in the garden.

Acting CA Chief Executive of the CAW  said that ‘the theme will be focusing on promoting compost’s tremendous potential to improve soil fertility and soil structure, within local communities. We’re also aiming to promote the benefits of this versatile renewable material when used as an alternative to peat.’

Big retailers such as B&Q, Tesco and Wyevale are also working in partnership with WRAP to support the campaign and actively promote the advantages of home composting by holding in-store ‘Compost Kiosks.’ These will serve as information points, with the provision to distribute leaflets, guidance and free samples.
