ShareCan / Trashcan


One of the ways to control waste is worm-farming. worm farms use worms instead of microbes to break down organic matter. The worms eat and digest the rotting scraps and poop out 'worm castings' which is a super nutrient rich soil type fertilizer that's perfect for gardens and crops. All of us have the amount of kitchen waste useful for the process. also there are people who need fertilizer for their plants and gardens. We designed trashcans use similar process which people can share their kitchen waste by putting their trash to the trashcan, then with the help of worms in the can fertilizers would be produced and whoever need could easily buy
