Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Vermicomposting benefits the environment by providing a unique and easy way to recycle kitchen waste into beneficial compost. Not only does one reduce waste, but also repurposes it into plant nutrients to improve seedlings growth by preventing pathogens. Currently, our waste management practices have a detrimental effect on the environment by emitting greenhouse gases. Vermicomposting benefits our waste management but also provides an organic fertilizer beneficial to growth of plants.
