Plant your pants

Plant your pants !
Yes, you've read that correctly.
A campaign called 'Plant Your Pants' has launched to help us discover the health of our soil and understand its vital role in our lives, and all you have to do is plant your pants Learn about the fascinating world beneath our feet. All you have to do to support the cause is plant a pair of cotton pants in your soil at home - whether that be in your garden or a window box - and wait for the magic to happen just eight weeks later...
If, after this time, you are left with nothing but the elastic, you've hit the jackpot! Healthy soil, with high levels of microbial life, is able to break down cotton more quickly than soil with low levels. And it's an important thing to be aware of. Around 95% of our food comes from soil, and
yet it often goes unnoticed when we think about the health of our planet, so learning more about it, and taking necessary steps to care for it, is crucial.
Tom Fairfax, a farmer who supports the campaign, said:
"Healthy soil is teeming with life, much of which can't be seen by the naked eye, so getting our hands in the soil, and seeing the way it acts on a pair of cotton pants, is a brilliant way to experience its magic."

The sugarcane tubes by True organic of Sweden are also compostable. In a normal compost it takes about two years and in a Japanese compost system, Bokashi it takes about a year.
