Getting green in the kitchen doesn't get much easier than this.

One of the best ways to minimize the ecological impact of your kitchen is to compost waste such as produce, coffee grounds and egg shells. Waste that otherwise would consume landfill space can be turned into rich fertilizer.

Trouble is, few people want to walk outside to a compost pile every time they peel an apple or fry an egg. But storing waste in a bucket isn't all that appealing, either. Which is what makes BioBag Food Waste bags so great.

These ultra-thin 3-gallon bags are made from corn and will decompose in as little as 10 days. Keep one under the sink, fill it up as you cook over a few days, then toss the whole thing on the compost pile.

The company also makes kitchen bags, lawn and leaf bags, dog waste bags and litter box liners.
