So I did it. I took the leap into composting. I’m keeping it in my kitchen! It’s been there for two days, covered in plastic wrap, of course, but upon unwrapping, it passed the smell test. I mean, it smells no worse than fresh garbage. According to expert sources, all that’s needed to lessen odor is a healthy dose of newspaper. The carbon offsets the stinky nitrogen and creates an airy nest. Witness coffee grounds piling up, without the offense. It feels like the Earth is already a better place.
