We've got worms!
Not a sentence anyone likes to say do they? Well, we do!
Welcome to The Worm Bin
Worms are small but great and important little creatures. They have a very important role in this world: turning green waste into compost!
At The Worm Bin we specialize in selling compost worms. We are a small family business who do not take the earth for granted and try to do our best to make it a better place. That is how we became passionate about worms!
The best quality!
We are growing the best quality worms (a combination of 2 different species) and ship them all over Ireland. With every worm we sell we know that somewhere more waste is being converted into compost and not going to incinerators and filling up landfills.
We try to use recycled materials as much as possible. Even the boxes we use for shipping our worms to you or often re-used and can be fed to your worms!
All our worm feed and bedding is sourced locally as much as possible, our local green grocer being our biggest supplier together with the riding stables where Jessica goes horse riding every week.
How it works
The average household in the EU produces more than 350kg of food waste every year! Most of this ends up in landfill or incinerators. This is a major environmental problem that is growing every year. Even though the solution is very simple!
Worms love your food waste! Composting worms can eat up to half their bodyweight in organic waste every day! Worms love nothing more than crawling around in rotting food, fruit and garden waste. Passing it through their body they turn it into a very environmentally friendly product!
Worm compost is the best organic fertiliser and you can make it at home! Compost produced by worms is called vermicompost and has better water retention, aeration and stability. It helps your plants fight against disease and contains higher amounts of natural growth hormones.
