International Compost Awareness Week with Atlas Organics

The positive impact of composting is undeniable! From its direct effect on combating climate change to the catalyst composting can be for other environmental initiatives, the awareness around compost MUST grow. In order to achieve this, International Compost Awareness Week was created by the Compost Research & Education Foundation. Here at Atlas Organics, we are passionate about empowering individuals to become educated about compost then share that knowledge with their communities!

“International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry. It is celebrated nationwide and in other countries each year during the first full week of May. The goal of ICAW is to work together to raise public awareness on why we all should be composting our organics recycling and using compost. The program includes poster and video contests in the fall and activities and events held during the week in May. Throughout the week of ICAW, community and business events are held to encourage and celebrate composting – all types of composting – from backyard to large-scale are promoted.”
