Put Your Scraps to Good Use

By |

This little composting bin makes composting easy and space-efficient.

Bambeco Stainless Steel Compost Bin
$41.00 from One Twine

I cook a lot, and I usually have a bit of food scraps on hand. I’m talking things like the skins of garlic, potatoes, and onions, among other things. Instead of tossing them in the trash, I could save myself a whole lot of waste-related guilt by tossing them in a compost bin instead.­­

The Bambeco Stainless Steel Compost Bin is a super chic solution. It has a custom-fitted charcoal filter and a secure lid, so you don’t have to worry about any errant smells escaping. And it’s petite enough to keep company next to your trashcan; it can even live on your countertop. Toss in your cooking waste, table scraps, and shredded mail — make sure you’ve got an even amount of greens and browns — and you’ve found an easy, eco-friendly way to deal with organic waste. This little compost bin can help you take small steps to keep food waste out of a landfill, where it contributes to methane emissions.

    I just throw mine outside in the yard and let peelings decompost that way. I crush egg shells and throw them outside for the birds, they get calcium from the egg shells. Some plants like egg shells so I dig around the plant and bury the egg shells so the plant can get the benefit of the egg shells.

      Same. I have groundcover plants in the mulch bed that hide the fruit and veggie scraps as thry decompose. A banana peel turns into a rich black leaf in only 2 days, feeding my happy garden.

    Re: compost heap My neighbor bought a composter one summer. The next winter my house was invaded by mice. Exterminator believed that they had been feeding on the compost, When winter came and heap was frozen they came inside to feed.

      We started to compost using a container provided by local Agricultural extension. VERY soon it was full of roaches! :(

    We have a small garden and composting is a huge help. We also use coffee grounds from Starbucks -free.
