Q
Garbage In, Garbage Out

Question:

(a) What do you do with the left over food at home?

(b) If you and your friends are given the choice of eating in a plastic plate or a banana leaf platter at a party, which one would you prefer and why?

Answer:

(a) We should prepare compost from the left-over food at home. The method of making compost from kitchen waste by using redworms (earthworms) is called vermicomposting. Vermicompost is very high-quality manure.

(b) We should always prefer a banana leaf platter at a party because plastic is a non-biodegradable substance while a banana leaf platter is a biodegradable substance. Banana leaf platter at a party is harmless and we can easily prepare compost from it.
