While vermicomposting is an integral part of sustainability, there are many aspects to it that can also be a lot of fun! It’s the simple joys that brighten up the day, and vermicomposting is no exception. After getting over the initial excitement, here is how this fun activity can be more than just a daily eco chore!
1. The food just magically “disappears”!
Isn’t it just awesome that in a matter of days, your organic scraps just turn into earth? Who gets over that feeling? I’ve been composting for more than four years and I am still amazed! Worms eat half their own body weight everyday, so you can
2. Great (and useful) conversation piece.
While many people in the consumerist culture buy any junk for their home to make themselves interesting to guests, you don’t have to! Guests come over and actively ask about it, and you are glad to explain it in great detail!
3. Seeing happy and thriving living beings in your home ecosystem is always heartwarming feeling!
It’s not just worms, but a whole ecosystem that live happily in your bin! And you are maintaining all these lives! And because of you, the population of the worms double in less than four months!
4. Vermicomposting gets you in touch with nature and the circle of life.
In a world full of technology and less human interaction, it’s no wonder why so many people are disconnected with what’s happening to our environment. What better way to connect yourself with nature than to have a big part of it functioning in your home.
5. In the long term, vermicomposting will give us a cleaner environment that we can all enjoy!
Every action counts! If you compost on a regular basis, you are putting less garbage into landfills by at least 50 pounds a year! Imagine that number when you share your worms for your friends to start composting! This has a real impact on the quality of the environment and how we enjoy outdoor activities, like swimming, biking and hiking!
6. Personal satisfaction!
Being jaded and feeling helpless is a common sentiment shared by most people when it comes to the topic of the environment. This feeling is not psychologically healthy to live with, so doing something rather than nothing is always will contribute to your sense of personal satisfaction. With our worm calculator, you can see tangible numbers on how you are contributing, and the feeling that comes with it is great!
