Bursting with fun to get your kids recycling!
Tumbleweed’s Can-O-Worms is a great way to get kids into recycling and its bursting with fun! The Can O Worms has been designed with built in mounds to encourage worms to move from collector trays to working trays, a unique flow through ventilation to maximise performance and no mess extras like well designed legs and a drip free tap.
Approximately 45% of household waste and 30% of all the waste we throw away is organic and compostable.
Yet many people toss their organic waste into the bin and wait for their local Council to collect it and add it to landfill.
What they don’t realise is that organic waste in landfill breaks down and releases methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
This anaerobic process contributes to groundwater pollution as the acid liquid leachate is released.
Recyling your organic waste – by using a worm farm or compost bin – is aerobic, which mean it doesn’t create pollution. In fact, it turns organic waste into a rich fertiliser to feed your garden.
Our belief at Tumbleweed is that if Australians are going to solve the problem of food waste management and minimisation it requires a commitment from all of us!
Worms will eat anything that was once living,
- Leftover vegetable scraps, fruit and vegetable peelings
- Tea leaves / bags and coffee grounds
- Vacuum cleaner dust or hair clippings (also animal)
- Torn up newspapers, egg cartons or soaked pizza cartons
- Crushed egg shells (these will also help with the pH balance)
The greater the variety of material you use, the better the casting will be. Everytime you add food to your work farm, remember to sprinkle over a handful of soil from your garden. The worms will use the grit in the soil to help grind up the fresh food waste.
