This is a regular garbage bag full of shredded cardboard for vermicompost or other pet bedding. It’s free of tape, staples and labels. Shredded and ready for your vermicompost bin.
Shredded cardboard is a popular bedding option (and my personal choice). Cardboard breaks down more slowly than paper and provides a bit of structure, allowing for air flow. Corrugated cardboard is ideal. Avoid wax coated or glossy printed cardboard (like cereal boxes). One of the main reasons that I go for shredded cardboard is that I can use a waste product.
The idea of tearing and cutting cardboard lasted about five min for me. I happily invested in a paper shredder for shredding my cardboard. My main criterion are the largest sheet count I could get my hands on (18 pages was what I found as the largest commercially available option). Other than that, it is just a basic paper shredder. Be sure to remove tape, labels and staples and shred away.
Since I’ve already devoted my life to shredding cardboard, I’ve made it available for purchase for local folks. This is a good option while learning the ropes and deciding if shredded cardboard is your bedding of choice for your red wigglers.
Great for vermicompost bedding. Also used for pet: Guinnea pigs, rats and chickens have all used my cardboard.
