Time Lapse Composting Video (80 sec) - Every Cup Counts

363 million paper cups are used each day. Every year Americans add 500 million pounds of cups to landfills, just from paper cups. Their cups are lined with petroleum.

Every cup, plate, fork, knife or spoon sold on this web site could be composted and used to grow a healthy planet. You can start using Eco Friendly Cups Today watch below.

Be Amazed how this short (80 second) composting video demonstrates the decomposing of disposable cups made from plants (not petroleum) using 3 month time lapse photography.

During composting, microorganisms from the soil digest organic waste and break it down into its simplest parts. This produces a fiber-rich, carbon-containing materia with mineral nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. The microorganisms break the material down through aerobic respiration, and require oxygen from the air. You introduce the required oxygen when you turn the material in the compost bin. The microorganisms also require water to live and multiply. Through the respiration process, the microorganisms give off heat -- temperatures within compost piles can rise as high as 100 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit (38 to 66 C). In a properly managed compost pile, managed by turning and watering it regularly, the process of decomposing into finished compost can happen in 90 days.
