Announcing the 2019 ICAW Theme: Cool the Climate – Compost
By coming together with a global voice that promotes compost, International Compost Awareness Week is a call to action. The 2019 ICAW theme, “Cool the Climate – Compost!” recognizes the connection between soil health and the climate. Soil plays an important role in our environment. Healthy soil is at the heart of planetary, agricultural and human health. This year’s theme highlights that soil management practices with compost is key to soil health and migrating climate change. By composting, we return nutrients to the soil, help capture carbon from the atmosphere, resist drought and disease and provide fresh air.
