“Super composter” personal project of ESC volunteer.
Argonauta association from Murter in Croatia has completed the first edition of the WIN project (Volunteer IN Murter) that hosted three volunteers which significantly contributed to the work of Argonauta and to the local community. Through their volunteering service, the volunteers carried out their personal projects, and the last implemented project is the one of Costanza Lauria, the volunteer who designed and made SUPER KOMPOSTER!
The idea for a composter came to our volunteer soon after arriving in Croatia for a simple reason – she didn’t know where to go with bio-waste! Although utility companies also offer composters in Croatia, people simply do not have the habit of composting, unlike Italians. Ready to change that, Costanza designed and made SUPER KOMPOSTER as part of her personal project – interesting, attractive, and easy to use! The goal of the project and the composter itself is to present composting to children from an early age as an interesting and useful activity to help the planet Earth, compost-eating animals, and people who will eat healthy food, grown in fertile land obtained from the compost!
The huge paradox of today is that one-third of all food produced ends up as waste while 800 million people are hungry. Also, discarded food is a huge problem in waste management because the area it occupies is equal to the area of China. In order for us all to be part of the solution, instead of the problem, we invite you to make a SUPER COMPOSTER, to recycle your bio-waste, and to create excellent preconditions for growing your own, healthy food!
With a little will and effort, you will learn to imitate nature and close one cycle! 🙂
