what about compost as a substrate?

what do you all think of compost? would it be safe? or are the bacteria that break down the mulch harmful? i know it usually holds moisture and burrows pretty well, i wonder how it would do mixed with topsoil or dirt. i've got a lot of compost made from yard litter/leaves/grass clippings and some old fruits/veggies. could it be used (maybe mixed with something) as a substrate for redfoots? i'm stopped using cypress mulch because i found out that in order to get it, they clear cut very old cypress forests here in florida and other states. think of all the trees they cut and grind (the very slow growing trees usually dont end up as lumber, but rather much)
