Description

Join the Green Revolution with a Bokashi Bran system. Just a sprinkle reduces the impact on the environment and helps to create a greener earth.

What is Bokashi?

Bokashi is wheaten-bran that has been brewed with effective-microorganisms. Bokashi is used to treat food waste to stop it from rotting and smelling. This form of recycling diverts food waste from landfill, saving 98% in carbon emissions.

The word “Bokashi” means fermented organic waste. Bokashi is the generic term for this type of food waste treatment.

How does it work?

Place your discarded food waste in the composter bin (bread, citrus, vegetable scraps, egg shells, small amounts of paper, even meat), compress with a mashing tool, and sprinkle with about a 1/3 cup of  Bokashi Bran. Continue doing this until the composter bin is full (usually 3-4 weeks for an average family). At this stage, seal the lid for minimum 2 weeks while the food waste is being fermented. The longer it's sealed, the better. During this time a handy tap on the Bokashi composter allows you access to the incredible nutrient ‘tea’ which serves as an excellent fertilizer. After a minimum of 2 weeks of fermentation mix it into your compost heap, or put it in a hole in the garden.
