An indoor worm bin is the perfect way for anyone to do their bit for the environment. Weather you live in an apartment or on your own in a house, you can compost with worms and keep your kitchen scraps out of the landfill. This is helpful for many reasons, in a landfill organic waste will decompose anaerobically and send Methane up to our atmosphere. Methane is much more destructive as a GHG than Carbon Dioxide. A worm bin will eventually produce vermicast, the best organic fertilizer around. If you don’t have any houseplants to use your casting on, you can always gift them to the green thumbs in your life. They’ll thank you for it. You can set up a bin for just a few dollars. Any dark coloured Rubbermaid bin will work. http://www.naturesperfectplantfood.com/2011/11/15/easy-worm-bin-photo-essay/ You can get fancy with a pre-designed system like the Worm Factory 360. http://www.naturesperfectplantfood.com/2012/05/01/360-start-up/
Worm bins eat up your scraps, absorb your paper waste and help the environment, but most importantly, they’ll make you feel better about your waste interactions in this world.
