Its been a pretty hectic 2 months getting ready for kids instyle in Melbourne. We have a fantastic secret stand,(they have never had a stand like ours at the show) of which we will take loads of photo’s and post on our news page. Designers/artists, Stepmums, have made pieces to decorate the stand and visual merchandisers/artists, Jamesdean productions, will be erecting and decorating the stand.
We will be showing some of our innovative eco wear, due for release in summer.
For those of you attending the show, please make sure you contact us for an appointment.

We at eco peko love our worms. Kids think they are fantastic, they eat stuff your chooks won’t and they are super easy to look after.
Now we are relatively new with worm farming, but so far we have picked up a few tips that we would love to share (also I went to a talk by Kerry Sourdin, the Worms on Wheels lady, who told me loads of stuff. For Perth residents, Kerry can supply brilliant worms and information sessions [this woman knows alot about worms]. You can contact her on (08) 9337 7933 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Tips for happy wormies
- the styrofoam boxes work a treat. Make sure you put them on an angle, with a little pipe at the base to drain off liquid (super fertilizer). Worms like to be wet, but they don’t know how to swim.
- feed them with kitchen scraps. Its best to steer clear of meat, onions and citrus peels. They love, love, love watermelon!
- tuck them in with a layer of wet newspaper and a piece of wet carpet.
Thats it! Its super easy. If you would like a more detailed information sheet, send us an email at email@example.com and we will send it through.
