Richard Webner from the Chicago Tribune covers the popularity of vermicomposting in article Worm Composting Growing in Popularity. Read about how companies such as Urban Worm Girl, Windy City Worms, Kimmy Compost, and Nature's Little Recyclers are using worms to transfer the composting and waste industries.
"Hubbard, who runs Nature's Little Recyclers with his son Dale, sought $5,000 in his Kickstarter campaign, which ended Wednesday. He plans to use the money to buy a van, a cardboard shredder and a forklift — tools that would help him grow his business to an industrial scale, he said. He envisions worm composting becoming as essential to Chicago's trash collection operation as recycling bins."
