Styrofoam is toxic in our landfills polluting the soil and the water. Styrofoam makes up more than 6% of landfill waste by volume!
NOW THERE IS A SOLUTION TO STYROFOAM POLLUTION AND LANDFILL WASTE!
STYRO-FARM! makes a great experiment for the classroom or a fun toy for home or a way to combat styrofoam pollution.
Our remarkable discovery allows mealworms to eat and digest styrofoam reducing it to a very small amount or organic waste that can be disposed of safely in a compost pile or in the trash!
Teachers – If you are interested in using Styrofarm in the classroom we even provide experiments and curriculum on our website http://styrofarm.com
Want to recycle styrofoam at home? Styrofarm is the solution!! This DIY Styrofoam recycling kit is fun, educational, interactive and super easy to use.
Styrofarm sets up in less than 15 seconds! WOW!
Styrofarm lasts forever!! Just add styrofoam as needed (maybe once per month) and you are all set. No food or water to add. Our mealworms will eat and grow and reproduce and the kit will work in perpetuity!
Interested in Styrofarm? Hate Styrofoam? We thought so. That’s why inventor, worm farm, ecologist and lover of worms and bugs, Chad Currin, owner of BioSoil Farm created Styrofarm.
Say NO to Styrofoam pollution and landfill waste. Get your Styrofarm today!
Styrofoam – or expanded Polystyrene is an ecological disaster! It fills our landfills. It pollutes our water and our soil! Styrofoam is bad stuff yet there are tons and tons of produced and thrown away weekly!
Chad Currin, owner of BioSoil Farms has invented a small DIY Styrofoam Recycling Kit called StyroFarm! It harnesses the amazing power of mealworms to eat the styrofoam which gets rendered harmless and organic in the mealworm’s gut. These amazing little creatures, the larvae of the flightless Darkling Beetle, can live on a styrofoam only diet – no additional food or water source needed. They consume Styrofoam and what they excrete is harmless and safe to dispose of – plus it reduces the volume of the waste by about 95%! WOW!
Are interested in being part of the solution?
Three things we should all be doing to reduce the effects of Styrofoam Waste:
- Refuse Styrofoam and don’t use it. Don’t accept Styrofoam to-go containers or cups that after one use will clog our landfills and pollute our water and soil for millions of years!
- Reuse Styrofoam – Packing peanuts especially can be used over and over again. Shipping and mailing centers like those owned and operated by FedEx and UPS will gratefully accept your packing peanuts made from Styrofoam to reuse over and over again.
- Recycle Styrofoam – Until just a few days ago, recycling Styrofoam was impossible. But not any more. With BioSoil Farm‘s StyroFarm you can recycle Styrofoam at home, in the office or recycle Styrofoam at school!
We created the StyroFarm kits to deal with on of the greatest potential ecological disasters: Styrofoam Pollution!
Styrofoam is the FIFTH LARGEST source of hazardous waste in the WORLD!
In case you are unaware of the dangers that Styrofoam presents, we have gathered a few resources for you.
“The production, use, and disposal of Polystyrene (a substance more commonly known as Styrofoam) causes adverse environmental and health effects. These impacts are of considerable concern, as, according to the Environmental Production Agency, Styrofoam is the fifth largest source of hazardous waste in the United States.” read more at the link below:
But there is a solution to Styrofoam Pollution! What if a common bug could safely eat the Styrofoam and convert it into a non-toxic, organic substance that can easily and safely be disposed of?
The solution to Styrofoam Pollution is STYROFARM! We have discovered a way to reduce Styrofoam into organic, non-toxic waste using…. wait for it… mealworms! Yes, Mealworms. The larvae stage of the flightless Darkling Beetle. They eat the styrofoam and the chemicals in the mealworm gut reduce the styrofoam to non-toxic, safe organic waste.
Want to see for yourself? This is what StyroFarm can do! It’s an amazing DIY Styrofoam recycling center!
All this is possible with BioSoil Farm’s StyroFarm – the first DIY Styrofoam Recycling Kit. This kit makes a great science experiment for a school class, a fun educational toy for home or a great conversation starter at the office!
I am thrilled to announce that I have published my first children’s book and it is about worms and the vital role they play in the health of our soil and all that we grow in it. A friend of mine persuaded me that I should write a book like this to go in conjunction with the grade school arts-in-ed programs I offer.

BioSoil Farm is proud to have joined LocalHarvest.org. We share the same goals and ideals and wish to work together to find ways to make local organic food the norm and accessible for all people. We each do our part.
At BioSoil Farm we use worms to recycle tons and tons and tons of waste stream materials that would otherwise find it’s way to landfills and we turn it into one of the best fertilizers nature has to offer.
By tightly controlling the temperature, moisture, ph and diet of our worms and night crawlers we are able to maximize the quality and quantity of worm castings that we produce.
Worm Castings in turn serve the farm members of Local Harvest so that they can organically fertilize and protect their plants that grow our food. Worm castings are a critical component in the move from chemical fertilizers and pesticides to organic, sustainable agriculture. We use waste stream materials as fertilizers and pesticides both saving materials from landfills and nurturing and protecting the plants that grow the food I eat and feed my family.
If you want to eat organic, local, food that is bursting with flavor.. worm castings are a critical part of the equation.
We look forward to doing whatever we can to support localharvest.org and all organizations dedicated to local food and quality food accessibility.
