3. Bottomless Composters
o Old drums, cans, water containers with
the bottoms off
4. Clay Flower Pots Compost
o 10 flower pots
o Use by turns
5. Plastic Bag Composters
6. Compost Bins
o Chicken wire/ durable “basket”

3. Recycling
- Most useful + helpful way
- Source of income
- Reduce pollution
- Save natural resources
2. Composting - conserve energy
- Bio waste is placed in a certain tank/hole for a
certain time to let it decompose with the help of BENEFITS OF PROPER WASTE DISPOSAL
1. Sense of Peace
o Yeast
- Emotional + physical sop
o Worms
o Molds
2. Protection of Human Health
- Used as a fertilizer for plants
- Ekis burning of garbage bc it causes pollution +
Steps on Composting threat sa human health
- Chlorine-containing materials
1. Chop biodegradable wastes into finer o Ex: plastic
portions o Produce toxic compounds dioxin &
o Smaller = faster to be used furans
2. Mix up bio wastes and place them into - Carbon-base materials
composters o Produces carbon monoxide
o Do not burn on top of the
piles/composters bc the heat will kill the
biological decomposers = delaying the

urbanized areas and to prevent such in the
3. Sprinkle a small amount of water.
o Moisture is essential for microbial
4. Slowdown of the Earth’s resources
o Protect the composters from
- Glass: Silica from sand
accumulating too much liquid to avoid
- Aluminium, tin, iron: Deforestation: Mining :
leaching (garbage juice)
- Plastic: Petroleum
4. Sprinkle/layer with soil so as not to invite
- Paper: Tress
flies and to control odors.
5. Additional Income
o Place soil in between the layers of the
- Good business, takes perseverance + effort
5. Aerate the pile
o Turn it once or twice a month to provide
necessary O2 B. CLIMATE CHANGE
6. When the interior of the pile is no longer
hot, and material has broken down into a
dark & dry soil, it’s finished 1. CAUSE
- Accumulation of GHG in the atmosphere,
trapping heat of the sun
Types of Small Scale Composters - Greenhouse Effect
o Warming that happens when certain
1. Twin Pits gases in Earth’s atmosphere trap heat
o 1m x 1m 1m
o Dig into ½ meter apart 2. IMPACTS
o Put small twigs at the bottom - Agriculture
o Hollow tube for air inlet
o Too much/little rain = decrease crop - Minimize use of appliances with too much
yield = affect food supply energy
- Health - Water heaters, washing machine, industrial fans,
o Increase vector-borne diseases dishwashers
- Biodiversity
o Change in composition of species 5. Use renewable energy sources
- Coastal - Use solar panels
o Sea level rise = affect business near it
6. Patronize Recycled Products
3. Strategies that may address CC
- Requires adaptation & mitigation strats 7. Reduce Consumption

4. What is the international community doing to

solve climate change?
- Signed the United Nations Framework
Convention on CC
o Seeks to stabilize GHG

5. What is the Government doing to help solve CC

- Climate Change Commission
o RA 9729
o Climate Change Act of 2009
o Sole policy-making body of gov’t
tasked to coordinate, monitor, and
evaluate action plans related to CC
o Tasked to formulate the
 Basis to protect communities
from fx of CC
 Manage foreign funding for CC


1. Lights
- Incandescent to compact fluorescent
- Turn off
- Bring sunlight to home

2. Vehicles
- Have regularly service for efficient engine
- Short distances = walk/bike

3. Refrigerators
- Clean it
- Maintain thermostat

4. Energy Guzzlers
