Regardless of your reasons, composting is a win/win scenario. Good for you and good for the environment. You may be skeptical about composting. The skepticism sounds healthy to me. Why would anyone want a big pile of rotting food in their yard or home?

It doesn’t sound hygienic, and it doesn’t sound fun. But composting is good for everyone . What are your preferred ingredients for composting? I try to use any produce from my own ground that we don’t eat as well as canning by-product.

Many DIY compost bins can be created from typical household items, making them extremely affordable. Construction methods range from simple to complex and a variety of materials can be used such as wood, brick, straw, plastic, and wire. Check out the list below as see if any of them will fit with your composting needs.
