Here's our DIY PET bottle composting documented from day 1 to day 25. During the composting process, gradual changes of the textures of the raw materials were observed after 14 days, followed by the appearance of a black colored humus-like substance which developed after 25 days of decomposition. Some might ask why are not bury the entire bottle into the soil? Yes, you can do that but the purpose of having the bottle partially buried into the soil is to enable participants to observe the entire decomposition process clearly. Are Maggots in Compost Good or Bad? Don’t fret. It’s normal. Maggots in compost are a good sign. These larvae play a positive role in your compost, decomposing everything quicker and adding extra nutrients to the mix. Maggots break down organic material. By eating it, they leave traces of processed food that eventually decomposes faster. Another reason is that maggots don’t cause any disease to plants or animals. Even though the flies are often linked to diseases, their larvae are not necessarily disease-giving. Having maggots in compost may feel like a gross thing to happen at first. But once you understand how helpful they can be and how safe they really are, you’re attitude against maggots will change. #blackgoldincreation #reducewaste #sustainablesaturday #wastetogold #foodwasteactionchallenge
