A great blog post by Who Gives a Crap with some simple tips on how we can fight climate change and keep our planet beautiful.
“In a world of more than seven billion people, each of us is a drop in the bucket. But with enough drops, we can fill any bucket.” – David Suzuki said it best. We don’t need a few people doing it all, we need everyone doing a little bit. Small changes make big impacts. One small thing you can do is start a (vermi)compost which uses worms to compost your organic waste! Vermicomposting is one of the best forms of composting, here’s why:
- It uses an aerobic process which does not produce methane. Methane is approximately 26 times more potent than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas.
- It can take as little as half the time of conventional composting.
- Vermicast also contains higher nutrient and microbial concentrations than conventional compost.
- Vermicast improves soil health and fertility, improves water retention and reduces the need for fertilizers and pesticides.
- Vermicast helps plants resist attacks by pathogens, insects and parasitic nematodes.
We have various domestic and commercial worm farms available – check them out here.
