I heard/read that animal fur is compostable.

My dog chews on the egg shells for me and composts them throughout the yard. I do the hair, dryer lint, coffee filters, friend's horse manure. Everything gets recycled around here so no paper or cardboard.

If you crush the egg shells before putting them in they will break down faster.

I compost egg shells, but they take a while to compost down. Dog hair goes in. Also, packing pop corns are biodegradable, they get composted.

We took a trip to California, and got compostable/biodegradable water bottles at the hotel. Brought them home and threw them the compost. At the end of the season they were still in there, whole. My pile is just starting to warm up after winter, so we will see what this year brings.

I have composted the Sun Chips bags before, and they took longer than most things in there, but they go eventually.

egg shells, used tea bags


You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

hair
When I clean it out of my hair brush, I toss it into my compost can in the kitchen with all the other stuff that eventually gets taken to the compost bin.

I've been known to throw scraps of cotton fabric in my compost pile! Natural-fiber yarn, also. I tried one of those compostable Sun Chips bags, but last I saw it, it was still recognizable after almost a year. I also add shredded junk mail, and when I peel potatoes, I peel them right into a paper grocery bag and throw the bag and all in the compost. Same with coffee grounds - I don't bother to remove them from the filter; just toss in the filter with the grounds still in it. It makes much less of a mess that way!

What weird stuff do you compost?

I read it was possible to compost 100% cotton t-shirts.
