    Association of Compost Producers have a mission to "increase the quality, value and amount of compost being used in California."   One of the best ways to make this happen is by helping your customers and community partners understand and be continually reminded of the benefits of using compost to build healthy soil, via our annual "International Compost Awareness Week" (ICAW) celebration, this year it's May 6-12, 2019.  

    The date is almost here!  sign up and we will send you the actions you can take right now to promote International Compost Awareness Week:

    International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry. It is celebrated nationwide and in other countries each year during the first full week of May. Started in Canada in 1995, ICAW has continued to grow as more people, businesses, municipalities, schools and organizations are recognizing the importance of composting and the long-term benefits from organics recycling.

    The goal of the program is to raise the awareness of the public regarding the benefits of using compost to improve or maintain high quality soil, to grow healthy plants, reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improve water quality and protect the environment. The program includes a poster contest, programs at schools and activities and events promoted through governments, public municipalities and local businesses nationwide.
