Overview

I don't know if you realize how much trash you’re going to send to your local landfill, in the next 10 years, but it's going to be a lot. As our population increases, we will need to find ways to reduce the amount of trash that you're sending to the dump.

What if I told you that you could reduce the amount of garbage that leaves your house, simply by starting a worm farm?

Would you be interested? Well it isn't difficult, but it can make a big difference. A few months ago, I saved my local landfill about 50 trash cans that would have been filled to the brim, in garden waste, from trimming trees and general yard clean-up.

That's a lot of green waste that my worms will eventually turn into valuable plant food. Instead of sending cardboard, paper, lawn clippings or junk mail to the dump, you can turn it into some of the best compost, available on the planet.

Instead of sending all of your kitchen waste down the garbage disposal or to waste processing plants, you can put it in your worm farm. There are more environmental benefits to starting your own worm farm, than you could imagine.

Each time a trash truck picks up your trash and hauls it to the dump, you can plan on burning valuable fossil fuels and creating extra air pollution. Not only that, if we could reduce the amount of time and labor spent on processing your waste, we might even be able to lower our utility bills.

Eventually were not going to have a choice, especially if we continue to burn through our natural resources, pollute the air and water and ruin our environment. I would imagine that it will be mandatory for everyone to have some type of waste processing facility, on their property, in the future, so why not get started today.

If you're interested in helping to save the planet, a worm farm is an excellent place to start.

    Let's Do This Together - Great Book

    I never even thought about starting a worm farm, because worms are gross and I don't want anything to do with them. Or at least that's what I thought, until I came across this book.

    I had no idea that I could turn some of my garbage into some of the world's best compost, until I actually came across this book, on another website. I went ahead and used one of the methods, found inside of this book, to start my own worm farm and believe it or not, it's working.

    The authors right, we can't do it alone, we need for everyone to get onto this wagon and start to seriously consider some of the things that can be done, to reduce pollution. Fantastic book, fantastic book, fantastic book.

    I Love His Books

    I bought this book from his website and like the person above, couldn't believe how much trash we waste, every single year, even though there's something that we could do about it. Even if you don't buy the book, did a hole in your backyard and start a simple form farm, to help the environment.
