What is Vermicomposting?
Vermicomposting is the consumption and decomposition of organic waste via an ecosystem of earthworms and microbes which produces a biologically-active soil amendment called worm castings.
Why Should You Vermicompost?
Vermicomposting at home, school, or office is the purest form of recycling, full-stop.
Food waste is by far the heaviest form of household waste, meaning it is the most costly in terms of carbon cost to truck it away.
And unlike recycling paper, plastic, or glass, you can do it at home.
Why Use a Continuous Flow Worm Bin?
In most DIY bins, this means disturbing the worms in order to tediously separate the worms from the worm castings.
Why Choose the Urban Worm Bag?
Because of innovative design and ridiculous customer service.
I am always striving to find ways to improve the vermicomposting process for beginners and the Urban Worm Bag does just that by making the harvesting process a breeze.
And I'm proud of the fact that the Urban Worm Company has a reputation for over-the-top customer service. Problem with your UWB? I'll send you a new one or come up with a solution that keeps you happy.
