Composting experiences in households



Composting experiences in households



Teho (6): 20-21, 39



The Department of Home Economics of the TTS Institute studied how eight small compostors, meant for year-round use and varying in type and size, performed and how easy they were to manage. The study included an interview in which 400 households in Hyvinkaa and Puumala in Finland were asked to give their opinions on the performance of their compostors and composting in general. The enquiry indicated that the respondents were environmentally responsible.
