We've been wanting to start composting in a theoretical sense, but the practicality of hoarding food scraps in our homes - and worse still, the stench - has stopped us from moving forward with this eco-friendly practice. Now we're more inspired than ever to actually give it a try after spotting a Farmhouse Compost Pail ($30) in a friend's kitchen. This rustic-looking container serves as a temporary storage for your food waste until it can be transported to an actual composting bin. Best of all, the pail includes a carbon filter to keep your kitchen from stinking up in the meantime.
