Composting is a biological and aerobic process in which organisms transform organic matter into a material like soil, which is called organic corrective. In home composting it is important to understand how to create the ideal conditions, to produce a quality organic corrective. Do you want to know how?

Did you know that…
About 40% of our municipal waste are compostable? Composting and Vermicomposting are an excellent way to prevent forwarding this material to the waste management circuits.

Besides, we can produce our own natural compost, great for our garden and kitchen garden. Want to start Home Composting at your home right away?

Vermicomposting is a method that uses worms, specialized organisms, to decompose organic matter. Little equipment is needed, and you can transform kitchen waste (fruit and vegetable leftovers) into an excellent organic product.

It is also a process of natural and aerobic degradation that requires little equipment and makes it possible to transform kitchen waste (fruit and vegetable scraps) into an excellent organic corrective. For that just feed the worms with the "food” they like and give them the ideal conditions to do their job!
