You can compost indoors!!
(Edited to add: Can you specify the number of people in your household - that might make a big difference! There's five of us)
The number of garbage bags we throw out just seems ridiculous to me!
It's usually about one regular size bag kitchen bag a day!
And our recycling bin is always full (that is picked up once a week) and I use cloth for almost everything!
Most of our waste is food, which is really sad but I don't know what more we can do about it: we get some of our food for free (foodbanks) or cheap and lots of it goes bad before we can eat it; we eat at home a lot and cook from scratch but then there's always lots of fruit and vegetable waste (peeling, etc.)
Also, we do tons of crafts, etc and I feel like we always have lots of little bits of stuff to throw away: paper bits that are too small for any use I can think of, etc.
I have thought of composting but we live in an apartment and I'm not sure what I would do with the compost or where I would keep it???
What is your experience and what tips have helped you reduce your waste?
