"Composting recycles materials like food scraps and yard waste that otherwise go into the trash. As demonstrated by the Cornell Waste Management Institute's "Composting in Schools" program, building a miniature composting project in a clear water or soda bottle allows you to observe the process (see References 1). This project is a valuable teaching tool in the home or classroom."
