Why should we care about WORMS

Report
WORMS
are part of the
solution
Worms are the
Earth’s natural
soil builders
Soil is the basis of our society
No soil = no food = no humans
Earth loses 25
billion
tons of topsoil
every year
Peak Phosphorus
Phosphorus is essential for the growth of plants. We mine phosphorus
from phosphate rocks. Phosphorus production is modeled to peak at
2030. What will this mean for a human population that will continue
to grow well beyond that point?
solution
How?
Composting
&
Wormfarming
By doing this we are ensuring
that the nutrients that are in
food scraps (that we used to
throw to landfill !) are recycled
and kept available for plants to
grow and feed us.
When organic waste (like food scraps) go
to landfill, it rots and produces methane
which contributes to global warming.
Landfill methane production accounts for
3% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Wormfarming is a great way to solve
this problem.
