So... a bit more researching and I realized I could make my own pretty cheaply... It isn't really pretty but it was dirt cheap! Here's what you'll need: A large container (I used a big pretzel jar but a large coffee container or anything with a tight fitting lid will do), charcoal filters (mine were $1 for 10 in the kitty litter isle), hot glue, nail or screw driver and (optional) BioBags.
The process is simple: Punch a few holes in the lid of your container. Hot glue the filters to the inside of the lid, covering the holes. Line with a BioBag and add your scraps as you collect them (I keep a bowl by the sink and when it is full, I dump eveyrthing in). The BioBags aren't necessary but they totally help with the clean-up. The bin will still smell when you open it, but it won't make your kitchen stink.
What can be composted? Fruit and vegetable scraps, bread, coffee grounds, egg shells that have been washed off, but NO MEAT or DAIRY!!!
Why compost? Well, if you pay for your trash and have a limit, this can reduce the amount. Plus, the scraps eventually become dirt that is full of nutrients that help crops grow healthy and strong... which helps us grow healthy and strong!
Peace be with you,
I'll be linking up to some of these parties, stop by and check out the talent!
