Much of the waste that we throw into the garbage can is made up of organic matter: remains of food, vegetables, coffee, fruits, egg shells, leaves, petals, etc. It is estimated that the percentage of biodegradable organic waste reaches 50%, especially if we consume many fresh foods. Hence the importance of recycling organic matter
According to the European Union , good management of biodegradable waste would provide environmental, social and economic benefits: "tens of millions of euros and up to 44 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions would be saved ".
I propose another way to recycle biodegradable waste. We can use them as a resource without previous treatment, recovering the traditional use of household garbage, that is to feed some food animals that generate food and excrement with which to fertilize the garden.
