关于堆肥革命

堆肥革命能让澳大利亚人轻松在家将食物残渣变成肥沃土壤和液体肥料并且减少送去填埋的垃圾量。因为普通澳洲家庭扔的垃圾约一半都是可用于堆肥的有机物质,所以使用家庭堆肥系统能显著地减少我们送去填埋的垃圾量。它也能减小我们对气候变化的影响,因为食物残渣在填埋时会分解释放有害的温室气体。

Revolution Apps是一个社会参与的行动,它运营着线上的堆肥革命、并与澳大利亚各地的地方市议会协作为居民提供他们在家成功修建堆肥箱或蠕虫农场的器材和技能。

堆肥革命是由地方市议会发起的社区活动,旨在减少生活垃圾填埋在环境和经济方面的负面影响。在2009年,悉尼东部的三个郊区(Waverley, Randwick and Woollahra)在新州EPA的资助下启动了一个先行项目。Revolution Apps与这些市议会合作在2011年将本项目扩展到了全国。

Willoughby City Council

The average Willoughby City Council red lid garbage bin consists of 46% food scraps. When these are transported to landfill they rot under anaerobic conditions to form harmful greenhouse gases. Home composting or wormfarming is an easy, fun and important way of reducing the volume of these materials going to landfill, cutting down on the associated greenhouse gases and returning valuable nutrients to the soil. By increasing the number of households that compost in our area we can reduce our ecological footprint and improve our local environment and community. The Compost Revolution includes the following components:

  • half price compost bins or wormfarm for residents of Willoughby City Council who complete the on-line tutorial or attend a FREE composting and wormfarming workshop.
  • Workshops on related themes such as organic gardening & cooking to avoid food waste.
  • Q&A section on www.reduceyourfootprint.com.au for people to ask (and answer) questions or for support for composting projects.
  • Events to celebrate community action, network and socialise.
