We have a compost bin in the backyard in which we put food scraps and grass clippings. We keep a pretty glass bowl out on the counter that we put our scraps into, including apple cores, egg shells, and vegetable trimmings. Then, once every day or two (before it gets moldy!) we take it out to the compost. It is a similar idea to the Garbage Bowl but even better, because we can eventually use the compost in our garden!
If you have dogs you may need to get a bowl with a lid or a canister type container. If you live in an apartment, you may need to get creative with your compost container and try something smaller indoors, like a crock or something for a balcony, patio, or porch.
