Our class has a unique opportunity to participate in a very interesting recycling project this year. Did you know that 20 pounds of worms can eat up to 10 pounds of common household "garbage" every single day? Better yet, that 10 pounds of garbage is turned into some of the best natural fertilizer on the planet (called "worm castings!
PROJECT: RECYCLE! can make it possible to help students learn about this new way to recycle our classroom and cafeteria waste.
Here's how PROJECT: RECYCLE! works. PROJECT: RECYCLE! matches up sponsors who are willing to donate the cost of a special Classroom Recycling Kit to a classroom such as ours. Included in this kit are: a special composting unit called the Can-O-Worms System, which is where the worms reproduce, live and turn our recyclable waste into something useful for the environment, 2 lbs. of hungry worms, a textbook on the subject of worm composting, a classroom workbook and a "Promote Global Worming" bumper sticker. WE NEED YOUR HELP!
