How the NC Zoo Saves 100K a Year! The Science of Compost

Every year the NC Zoo composts 2,000 tons of waste a year. This results in about 600 tons of soil and saves the zoo about a 100K dollars a year by keeping it in house.

I worked on this in tandem with the zoo staff to help show a bit about how composting works. My hope was that it would serve as a good introduction to composting. Then, I made a short add-on video that talks about how you could compost at home and why it’s easier than you think:
