At WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, we use food leftovers from the meals we prepare for our larger animals, such as our Emu and Crocodile, to feed our smallest creatures, like our crickets, woodie cockroaches, mealworms and yabbies. Nothing goes to waste at the zoo!
At home, why not start your own compost to feed your garden? Worms, and other garden dwellers will love you for it!
Composting is an essential part of reducing household wastes. The process involves decomposition of organic material into a humus-like material, known as compost, which is a good fertilizer for plants.
As worms eat and digest vegetable food scraps the nutrients in the food are converted into forms which can be taken in and used by plants.
What can be composted?
Not all food scraps are good to give your pets. It’s important to know what human food you can give to your pets – and it will depend on the type of animal you have.
Here are some examples of food you can give to your fluffy friends:
When cooking a meal at home, we don’t always think of what we can re-purpose to create, what can sometimes be a whole new dish!

At today’s rate of consumption, the amount of plastic in the world is expected to double approximately every eleven years. To put that into perspective, between now and 2028, we will produce the same amount of plastic as we have from the 1950’s until now!
Here are some simple tips to help you reduce the use of plastic in your everyday lives:
One of the best things we can do to protect the environment is to make sure we are conscious about how we are disposing of our waste and ensuring that we recycle properly. Whether you live in a house or an apartment in New South Wales, you will have a yellow and blue bin to sort your recycling into.
It can however be quite confusing to know what to put where? Be confused no more! Here’s a guide to tell you what you can and can’t recycle in the blue and yellow bins.
Recycle anything made of aluminium, steel, plastic and glass. On most plastic containers you will find a triangle with a number inside it. The number identifies the type of plastic the container is made from and will indicate if it can be recycled or not. If the number is 1 - 6, you are able to pop it in your yellow bin for recycling.

What can’t be recycled?
You can recycle most types of paper and cardboard, including the below:
