Bokashi Food Waste Bin (25L)
Diverting food waste from landfill and re-using it to enrich soil, is a sustainable way of utilising an otherwise environmental hazard. Use Earth Probiotic’s Bokashi system, in conjuntion with bokashi digester bran sold separately here, to easily and quickly recycle your food waste into soil food.
Earth Bokashi’s earth friendly formula includes the use of indigenous South African microbes and quality waste ingredients including sawdust, which would otherwise be disposed of into landfills. Earth Bokashi neutralises fermentation odours while delivering the ideal balance between carbon and nitrogen to assist with effective post fermentation treatments.
When bokashi is added to food waste, the moisture in the waste activates the beneficial microbes. This starts an anaerobic (“without air”) fermentation process. The fermentation process stops rotting thus eliminating any foul odours and pre-digesting the food waste so it becomes an easily absorbed soil food.
This 25L single bucket system food waste bin, with tap and internal strainer, is ideal for households, bistros or B&B operators. The strainer (to seperate the leachate from the food waste) is made from 100% recycled polypropylene. The bin is made from 65% recycled material. The tap enables the tapping off of the beneficial fermented bokashi juice. This liquid can be used as a powerful liquid fertiliser for plants (dilute 1:300).
Some households prefer having two bokashi food waste bins. Once the first bin is full, it is set aside for a 2 week fermentation period. Thereafter the contents is buried, composted or fed to a worm farm where it breaks down to soil within weeks.
