I’m Alex, a 27-year-old guy living in Portugal, and the founder of 101composting.com and veganfoundry.com.

Composting is not something I’m particularly passionate about, but I’ve developed a keen interest after becoming vegan and seeking greener solutions. To be honest, I had never heard of composting until then, but I could immediately see the value in doing so.

While I’m very careful as to not create unnecessary waste by adopting some of the ideas behind zero-waste living, the introduction of composting made everything way easier to manage and much more bearable.

Creating resources from waste.

The goal of this blog is to share my experience in compost creation by writing the answers to questions I have once wanted to know myself, and while I don’t proclaim to be an expert, I hope my input can provide you the guidance you’re seeking.
