Meet the Worms

Sustainable Packaging Stage Three: The Worms

My worm farm has been a bit sad of late. In fact, until recently I had managed to kill all the worms it seems. All the food scraps and waste had been heading to the big black compost bin down the back instead.

So, before I could get my paper packaging to disappear in my worm farm, I needed worms. This time I decided to start with an extra big population to speed up the process, so I bought 1kg of wriggling hungry worms from hungry bin.

Luckily for me my bin was still ready loaded with a great layer of bedding for the new inhabitants so they buried themselves down and got straight to work.

This time I'll make sure I remember to feed them and in a few weeks time, I'll let them loose on the Hoopla Kids packaging.

Every now and then we get enquiries about our laybuy service. We offer laybuy the original way you might remember from the 1990's (or earlier); of making manual part payments on an order and receiving your goods once it's fully paid off. Sometimes we're asked why we don't shift to using one of the new online laybuy systems available, and that is a good question which we can happily answer.
