Learn How to Reduce your Household Waste and Feed Your House Plants!
Composting in your apartment is easier than you think. With the rising awareness of the benefits of composting, there is an increasing amount of composting options that are available for city dwellers.
Household waste gets tossed into landfills, which actually generates methane gas. Methane is a harmful greenhouse gas that increases the rate of global climate change. By composting you can minimise your carbon footprint, make one less trip to the garbage can outside, and save money on fertiliser for your plants!
I've been researching how to start my own compost in my apartment for some time. Not too long ago, I found a product called City Worms. City Worms is a french made compost bin that is perfect for those who live in apartments. I believe this particular product is only available in Europe. However, there are many other similar products online since city composting is becoming so popular. Here is a link to a video of how to use it.
After reading an extensive amount of reviews, I decided to purchase one for my own apartment. I'll have to give an update on how it goes after a few months. Many reviewers claim that you cannot smell the compost bin even when it is placed in the kitchen. The fear of a smelly apartment was one of my biggest reasons for not composting sooner.
How to compost in your apartment:
With this particular one there is no need for turning the compost. The worms can travel easily as it has layers. As far as the flies go, it's pretty sealed off. As long as you sustain a regular amount of paper products and refrain from putting meat, dairy and acidic items, there shouldn't be an issue.
