International Compost Awareness Week Australia is here!

International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry. This annual event aims to raise awareness about the benefits of composting and encourage more people to compost their organic waste. Celebrated in the first week of May around the world, this year the initiative will run from the 5th- 11th May – promoting composting practices and sharing knowledge about organic waste into nutrient-rich compost for gardens and agriculture.

Throughout the week ICAW events are held all over Australia and the world with communities, schools, government, and industry hosting activities to encourage and celebrate composting on all scales. The 2024 theme: COMPOST Nature’s Climate Champion! Incorporates the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Composting helps achieve these targets by:

• Decreasing Methane 
• Helping Climate Change Mitigation
• Reducing Fertiliser inputs
• Increasing resilience
