the words bogs are the most effective carbon stores of all rural eco systems
Homemade compost in 48h | mykalea.de | Germany
Bogs not only make an important contribution to preserving biodiversity but are also the most effective carbon stores of all rural ecosystems ✌️🌎🌱 However, the bogs have been systematically drained and degraded over centuries - also for the use of peat. By using homemade compost, you can avoid using peat and therefore protect bogs. We are working with the Pfrunger-Burgweiler Ried Nature Conservation Foundation, which is renaturalizing a bog near Stuttgart.

Sad but true: Food waste from Europe alone could feed 200 million hungry people. 🍗🍎🌽🍇🥐🫐🫒🥝🥭🥦 Being aware of these amounts again and again and understanding what our consumption can do is worth a lot. Together, we can create a greener future. Always with the knowledge that a lot also has to happen politically and economically - but we can also work together for that.

Every day counts 🥳🌱💚
Even just one vegan day a week makes a difference. Do you also pay attention to your impact on the climate when you eat?

How thirsty is our food?
Water is life 💦 But we need it to produce our food 🍅🌽🍆🥖🥐🍤🍟 CO2 emissions are an important indicator - but we also need to consider the water footprint of food 🦶 Good to know: KALEA recycles the water contained in food. Either for the composting process, or, if there is any left over, for you to water your plants. In this way, all resources are preserved. Source: Statista
Food is power ✊🍅🌽🥕 You read that right. With your eating habits, you have the power to do something good for the climate. What quickly becomes clear in this picture? A vegan way of eating has a smaller ecological footprint. You don't eat vegan or vegetarian? No problem. Going without more often and looking for alternatives are great first steps.

25% of the world’s fresh water supply is used to grow food that is never eaten 💦😳 Here, the responsibility lies primarily with the food industry. But you can also do a lot at home - if something goes rotten, you can still compost it in KALEA. Because the natural decomposition process has already begun. 🌶🍆🍤🥖🥑🍓🥬🥭🍰🍟 With KALEA, you return the nutrients and some of the water back into the cycle. Mother Earth says thank you 🌍 Grow Food, Bon Appetite, New Iphone 11, Growing Food, Food Industry, Water Supply

This is a disaster! Not only because many of the foods were still edible. A large percentage of this food waste is disposed of incorrectly 😣 It ends up in conventional landfills and continues to rot there. In the process, food waste releases methane gas - a gas that is much worse for the climate than CO2. Be part of the revolution. Make Compost, Not Waste ☮️💜
Sometimes we forget the real value of things. Every single piece of food is produced. Bread does not grow on trees. It needs soil, grain, water, compost, sun and time. People who process the grain, who bake it into bread and sell it to us. With every food, remember how many essential resources are in it. And if there are parts not to eat, turn them back into fresh compost. In this way, important resources such as nutrients, minerals, but also working time, are not lost and remain in the cycle.

Everyone is talking about CO2. But methane is also a really bad gas in terms of the climate crisis because it has a much stronger effect than CO2. Incorrectly disposed organic waste causes methane gas and releases it into the atmosphere at landfills. KALEA is fighting this problem. When you make your own compost at home, you don't create methane gas. Annual emissions of methane can be reduced by up to 45 percent by 2030, according to the UN Environment Programme Unep.

1,555 million tons of food is wasted every year. The saddest part 😢? This food contains nutrients – essential nutrients that go from the earth, through plants, into our food. If this food is disposed of or burned, the nutrients are lost forever 🔥🌍 This is one of the reasons we founded KALEA: To be able to return these wonderful resources to the soil again and again. So with every compost cycle, you can make a positive change! Make Compost, Not Waste ☮️

One question that often reaches us: Can you compost cups or other single-use items labeled as “compostable” 🥤? At the moment, we don’t recommend filling them into KALEA, as these special synthetic materials can’t be composted within 48 hours. 👉 Right now, we’re testing whether our robust shredding mechanism can handle single-use items like those cups.
