Composting is the natural decomposition of materials, through physical and chemical changes, back into natural soil humus. This different and much more beneficial than simply allowing a material to biodegrade (defragment), since everything on the planet - from the simplest plant to rock and concrete - will "biodegrade" given enough time. Anything.
