Looking for a way to compost your organic waste? All you need is a bunch of worms and a plastic storage tub with a lid. How big the tub needs to be and how many worms you need depends on how much food waste you want to process per week. To give you an idea, a pound of worms can process half a pound of waste per day. You drill a few holes on the bottom and sides of the bin and follow a few more quick steps to finish the worm bin.

If you’re okay with having a box of worms in your house or apartment, it sounds like a cheap and easy way to make some high quality compost and make the world a little bit greener. If you’re worried about it stinking up your place, the guys in the video claim that it is almost odorless.
