Not all composts are created equal.
Did you know that if a bag of compost is not USDA Certified Organic or BioDynamic, chances are, the compost contains medical waste, toxins, pesticides, sewage, home cleaning products, sludge, heavy metals, plastics and cancer-causing chemicals?
That is not healthy at all!

How to tell if a bag of compost is safe for your garden? Look for the logo!
Here are some logos to help identify safe composting companies.
- Demeter BioDynamic
- USDA Organic
So make sure when you go to the garden shop and buy a bag of compost, the bag has one of the 3 top logos on the bag. If it doesn’t, stay away!
Green washing is a term that companies use to trick people into buying their garden supplies. If they have the logos above, you can trust they are safe.
Full Circle Compost – Eco Waste Management
The process of composting has come a long way in recent years. What was once a smelly and difficult task is now a streamlined process that is easy to do and good for the environment. Full Circle Compost is leading the charge in eco waste management. We take food waste and turn it into nutrient-rich compost that can be used to improve your garden or potted plants. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of composting and how Full Circle Compost is making it easier than ever to help the environment.
What is Full Circle Compost?
Full Circle Compost is an eco-friendly waste management company that specializes in composting. Their mission is to reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills, and to educate the public about the benefits of composting.
Full Circle Compost offers a variety of services, including residential and commercial pick-up, drop-off sites, and educational workshops. They also sell a variety of composting products, such as bins, worms, and starter kits.
Composting is an important part of Full Circle Compost’s mission because it reduces the amount of waste that goes into landfills. When organic material decomposes in a landfill, it creates methane gas, which is a major contributor to climate change. Composting helps to divert this organic material from landfills, and instead use it as a valuable resource for gardens and farms.
Full Circle Compost is committed to helping the environment, and they offer a variety of services to make composting easy and convenient for everyone.
What Services Does Full Circle Compost Provide?
Full Circle Compost provides a variety of eco-friendly waste management services to help you reduce your environmental impact. We offer residential and commercial composting services, as well as recycling and green waste disposal. We also offer consulting services to help you develop a sustainable waste management plan for your home or business.
Why is Full Circle Compost Good for the Environment?
Full Circle Compost is good for the environment for many reasons. One reason is that it helps to reduce methane emissions from landfills. Methane is a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. Another reason is that it reduces the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides. These chemicals can pollute the air, water, and soil. Full Circle Compost also reduces the amount of waste that goes to landfills. This is good for the environment because it reduces the amount of space needed for landfills, and it also reduces pollution from leachate (liquid that leaks from landfills).
How Does Full Circle Compost Work?
Assuming you are talking about the Full Circle composting process:
The first step is to place your food scraps in the kitchen caddy. Once the caddy is full, empty it into the tumbler. The tumbler will mix and aerate the food scraps, hastening the decomposition process.
Once enough time has passed (this will vary depending on temperature and other factors), you will have finished compost. Empty the tumbler onto your compost pile or bin, and use it to fertilize your plants!
What Are the Benefits of Using Full Circle Compost?
There are many benefits of using Full Circle Compost, including reducing your ecological footprint, cutting down on waste disposal costs, and creating a nutrient-rich soil amendment for your garden.
Full Circle Compost is an eco-friendly waste management solution that diverts organic waste from landfills and incinerators, where it would otherwise release methane gas – a powerful greenhouse gas. Instead, organic waste is collected and transported to Full Circle’s commercial composting facility, where it is turned into a nutrient-rich compost.
This compost can be used in gardens and landscaping to improve soil health, water retention, and plant growth. It can also be used as a natural fertilizer for lawns and gardens. In addition to the environmental benefits of diverting organic waste from landfills, using Full Circle Compost also saves money on waste disposal costs.
How Can I Get Involved with Full Circle Compost?
There are many ways to get involved with Full Circle Compost. One way is to become a compost pickup site. As a compost pickup site, you would agree to allow Full Circle Compost to pick up food scraps from your home or business on a regular basis. This is a great way to reduce your waste and help the environment!
Another way to get involved is by volunteering. Full Circle Compost relies on volunteers to help with events, education, and more. If you have some time and a passion for composting, consider volunteering with Full Circle Compost!
Finally, you can also support Full Circle Compost by spreading the word about our work. Tell your friends and family about us, follow us on social media, and write reviews online. Every little bit helps!
Full Circle Compost is a great eco-friendly option for waste management. Not only do they recycle your food and yard waste, but they also provide nutrients for your garden or lawn. They offer pick up services as well as drop off locations, making it easy and convenient to compost. With Full Circle Compost, you can be sure that your waste is being managed in the most eco-friendly way possible.
The composting event was a HUGE success with over 84 people who showed up to learn how to compost in their own homes and communities…
Patagonia is hosting an event tonight to help promote composting in Northern Nevada.
I’m excited to see their new digs in downtown Reno.
*New address is:
Their events are usually packed with fun, creative locals who are positive change makers in the areas of organic food production, healthy eco systems and the local food movements. This event is no different. Last years Mini Documentary screening was a blast. Locals brought in their organic dishes for the community potluck, we packed the place out!

Bee Habitat supports all forms of promoting healthy, organic soils. Did you know that the health of any plant begins and ends in the soil you grow it in? Did you know that using synthetic fertilizers, soils and compost break down the overall health of the soil forcing you to have to keep buying synthetic fertilizers and amendments to keep the plants alive? Crazy huh? but very smart business strategy from big ag. Bee Habitat strongly encourages the local composter’ and/or gardener to look for the USDA Certified Organic sticker/logo on any garden product you put into your precious soils. If it does not have that USDA logo, chances are, it is not 100% organic and/or safe.
With that being said, we have to start somewhere as a community. Bee Habitat presented a year ago to Reno City Council ideas to help compost most of the cities food wastes and re use throughout the city parks, schools and public areas. Although this compost would not be able to be certified USDA organic, it would be a HUGE leap in the right direction to help repair damage to our local eco-systems that have been treated with tons of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and GMO by products.
Healthy soils promote healthy food…and thus healthy people. The speakers at tonight’s FREE event are all promoting these ideas and working to heal our damaged food systems.
We’re thrilled to host an event dedicated to all things COMPOST!
