The Worm House / Home worm composting and planting

The Worm House
The Worm House

Food waste is the largest part of combustible waste. However, due to the high water content of food waste and the low calorific value of waste incineration, more greenhouse gases will be generated. With the new device, a worm house, not only can food waste be eaten, but their faeces can also make the soil in the device fertile, which can make our vegetables grow better. Worms, vegetables and people form a closed loop in a family. Also, the worm's esophagus is rich in digestive bacteria and loves eating food waste. Composting is simple because we only need worms, and this product does not require any technology or electricity.
