More than half of U.S. trash could be fed to Red Worms.

20 Oct

According to the E.P.A. and  Yahoo news the average American family throws away 4.5 lbs of table scraps everyday.  Most of which could be eliminated if they had a few red worms.  57% of the trash America puts into landfills is red worm food.  12.7% food, 13.2% yard trimmings, and a whopping 31% paper. Not only could landfill space be greatly reduced, but think of the $ that could be saved if you started composting and red worming.  It’s fun, easy, and great for your yard, plants, and pocket book.
