I was talking to my ST's aunt about this last week.
I love the idea of breaking down our kitchen waste and applying it to something useful (ex. our garden) vs. just contributing to a landfill. I've found several websites that talk about the pros and cons of creating your own compost bin vs. purchasing one.
This site gave me some cool ideas on indoor compost bins...but the red worm compost bin FREAKS me out. I just couldn't do it!
Plus, I was amazed by the statistic reported on this site - "Kitchen scraps account for 24% of Americans' trash..."
