We are Nature's Little Recyclers, a company focused on providing natural solutions combined with technology to make it more efficient. We want to take landfill levels of organic waste (such as food, coffee grounds, coffee chaff, t-shirts, paper products, and more) to produce quality vermicasts and fertilizers while simultaneously creating clean, organic topsoil.
The funding we receive will be used to expand our earthworm factory to eliminate organic waste (such as food, coffee grounds, t-shirts, cardboard, and paper) and instead convert the waste into top quality vermicastings, an organic biofertilizer that helps plants grow. By developing a large scale process, we can eliminate the levels of waste in landfills and provide local urban farms with needed soil amendments. In addition, the funding we receive will allow us to set precedent by becoming the first urban organic recycling facility, in which we are currently working with the City of Chicago to establish policies that will guide future development of other similar facilities. Thus with your help, we can better reach our goal of ten tons of worms that can eliminate five tons of waste a day, as well as create a licensed facility that can be replicated nationally.

Project Showcase Proposal
We have a working operational model system that can break down wastes, this allowing us to demonstrate how the overall process works from start to finish. We also have literature, signs, posters, and educational material to hand out to any interested individuals, particularly young children and other green-minded adults.
