When waste is not composted, it will end up in a landfill or incinerator, neither of which is environmentally-friendly or economical. Due to a lack of oxygen, landfill waste breaks down slowly and releases methane gas and acidic leachate, both of which are bad for the environment.
Spring cleaning kids’ rooms can be a challenge. If your kids are younger, the best way to get the job done is to get them involved and really play up the “teamwork” aspect – like slap high-5’s when a section is completed, make it a race to see who can remove the pillowcases first, etc. If you make spring cleaning a fun game, it may take longer to get it done, but you will be able to spend more time with your child & get a chore done at the same time. Now that’s a win/win!
