Carbon sequestration is the process of capturing and storing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. (aka cleaning our air). This can be achieved through natural processes such as photosynthesis, or through human-made methods such as composting, or carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies. The goal? Reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere, which is a major contributor to climate change. By capturing and storing carbon dioxide, we can help mitigate the negative effects of greenhouse gas emissions and work towards a more sustainable future.
how composting sequesters carbon
Composting transforms organic waste into nutrient-rich soil. This not only reduces the amount of waste that goes to landfills, but it also helps sequester carbon from the atmosphere. When organic materials decompose in a landfill, they release methane, a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. Composting, on the other hand, can be used to improve soil health, which in turn increases carbon storage in the soil. Overall, composting is a simple yet effective way to reduce waste and combat climate change.
We love compostable clothing! Here's why:
- It is made exclusively from natural materials that can be broken down into compost, which is beneficial for the environment.
- It reduces waste in landfills, as it can be composted instead of being thrown away.
- It is made from less toxic materials or processes that have a smaller environmental impact than synthetic or conventional cotton alternatives
- Finally, compostable clothing is often more comfortable to wear, as it is breathable and can regulate body temperature better than synthetic fabrics.
