It's all about choices.
Our speaker today on Vermiculture (a Professor of the University of Hawaii) told us alot of interesting information today at a workshop on Vermiculture. The wax/clay used on glossy paper we receive is not all that bad...the secret is soaking it/them in water for about 12-15 hours and then ripping the magazines/paper apart. Soaking makes it nice and easy. The worms have no problem. THIS is good news!!!!

I always wondered about the glossies. I usually put them in the recycle bin since I wasn't sure. Thanks for that tip.
