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.
