Counting the Omer – Feeding the Land, not the Landfill
New biodegradable and compostable cutlery and dishes will are available now and they can be added to your compost pile. Consider buying these for your life cycle events, simchas and parties. We used this for our Lag b’Omer picnic. Take care when purchasing to make sure the items you purchase are compostable in the home compost bin. Some are only compostable commercially.
