Organic waste, from the kitchen and the garden, makes up close to 50% of waste generated by the Malaysian household which will usually end up in a landfill. As the organic material rots in the landfill, the greenhouse gas, methane is released. Scientists have linked the increased release of methane into the evironment with global warming. To help address this, we can start composting.
