When it comes to composting kitchen scraps, “Twilight” star Nikki Reed prefers to enlist the help of worms.

The 24-year-old vegan actress recently revealed that she was inspired to take on vermicomposting (which uses using worms and micro-organisms to break down organic materials) after a recent trip to San Francisco. 

“It doesn’t smell at all,” she said. “It really doesn’t. It’s just worm doo-doo. It’s just soil and a plastic tub. I’m sure at the end of the day we waste plenty, but we do try to put as much of our food in there as possible.”

According to Wikipedia, large-scale vermicomposting is practiced in Canada, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, and the United States. If you’re interested in befriending some worms and setting up your own kit at home, check out this site for more information.
