Dwell in a small space or urban place? You can still keep food waste from the landfill. Umbra breaks down countertop composting:

- A deeper dig into how to start composting.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of our Ask Umbra advice column, and to celebrate, we’re pulling a favorite gem of eco-advice out of the archives each week.
