The Ten Commandments of Vermicomposting

The wriggly path to vermicomposting success may seem a bit daunting if you’re new to the home composting world. A Subpod worm farm is actually a super easy way to fight food waste and feed the planet though. We want to make the process as seamless as possible, so home composting easily integrates into your everyday life.

If you're new to the space, we know you’ve got a lot of questions about vermicomposting. Particularly when it comes to the care of your new wormy friends. What do I feed them? What temperatures do they like? How do I keep them comfortable?

The Subpod team has your back! All those questions, and more, are answered in our ‘Ten Commandments of Vermicomposting’. These are guidelines to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of your worm farm, helping you feed the planet, fight food waste and enjoy bountiful harvests of compost.

A Fast Food Burger Wrapped in…. Seaweed?

We’re gonna come out and say it… fast food probably isn’t the, er, healthiest food for people or for the planet. What gets us is the packaging. Relatively small meals come wrapped in oil-proof plastic and then placed in large boxes, served along with soda drinks with nasty plastic straws.

Any initiative that reduces the amount of packaging waste from fast food is a good one in our books. We’re pretty excited about this sustainable alternative that researchers from Flinders University are working on.

They’re creating a seaweed-based biopolymer that has a similar structure to the natural fibres of paper. It’s then given additional treatments to boost the grease-resistant properties of the seaweed paper.

What this means is that instead of being wrapped in oil-proof plastics, burgers could soon be wrapped in seaweed! This could be great news for the environment if production is scaled up. Watch this space, and find out more about this intriguing story below.
