Soil And Waste Remediation Through Composting

The Blue Worm Bin

Why Soil Remediation?

Every day we walk on it, play on it and take it for granted, it's soil. Soil along with water and sunlight are the source of all life on planet earth. For decades we have ignored and abused our planets soil. Abused soil leads to decreased health, increased disease and polluted waters. The time has come for a grass roots movement to bring back to health our soil.

Why Use Waste?

According to the FAO

  • One-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally, which amounts to about 1.3 billion tons per year
  • Food is lost or wasted throughout the supply chain, from initial agricultural production down to final household consumption
  • Food losses represent a waste of resources used in production such as land, water, energy and inputs.

Feeding the world's population would be the best thing we could do with the wasted food. Barring that returning it to the soil as compost is the next best alternative.
