It’s been 6 months since we started to observe the compostable chip bag in the worm bin. As you can see they are starting to break down a bit. The materials seem to be separating into different layers but it’s slow going. In an effort to speed things up we’ve placed the bag shreds together and put food directly on top.
It’s apparent that the worms can not ingest the bag so we’ll see if just moving through them will help.
It’s also suspected that sunlight or lack there of could be having an effect as well. Stay tuned for updates and we’ll find out if the bags really break down within a year.
