Florida Dunkin Donuts Has A Massive, Solar-Powered Worm Bin

We love it when companies make an effort to green their businesses — even if the products they’re selling may not be the healthiest thing in the world for people. Take this Dunkin’ Donuts in St. Petersburg, Florida. Not only is it the first LEED-certified restaurant in the company’s history — but it also features something we’ve never seen before: a gigantic, solar-powered worm bin from Mother Organics.

This worm bin could most certainly beat up your worm bin — and then turn it into compost.

Holding over 80lbs of hungry red worms, this bin takes all of this Dunkin’ Donut’s used coffee grounds and paper and turns them into worm castings and worm tea. This “liquid gold” is then incorporated into the compost or humus at Mother’s Organics facility. According to the site RealNeo, Mother Organics is still tweaking their giant worm bin — but the design is patented and additional locations may soon be able to order one up. Sure would be pretty cool to see these giant bins next to your standard garbage ones. Nice work, Dunkin’!

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
