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!
