Soil

natural carbon sink - soil

When plants absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and convert it into sugars, they store some part of these in the soil, through their roots. This carbon then becomes nutrition for micro-organisms living in the ground, which in turn naturally fertilize it and make healthier. Carbon stored in soil is very good for us, it makes our food more nutritious. Compost is one of the ways to send more carbon which plants capture from the air to the soil.
