Bokashi One Kitchen Composting. What is Bokashi?
According to Wikipedia, the term Bokashi is a Japanese word that means “fermented organic matter.” Whether it does or not, that’s what it has come to mean in North America and Britain. The Bokashi host medium can indeed be almost any fine organic grain or grass-like substance — bran, rice, wheat mill run (WMR, a waste product from flour milling), used mushroom growth medium, dried leaves, even sawdust.
The system is comprised of a Bokashi One Bucket and Bokashi One Mix which work together to eliminate the odours and unpleasantness associated with putrefaction and decay. The Bokashi One kitchen composting system is a convenient and hygienic process which utilises food waste to produce a nourishing compost and rich juice which inject life and vitality into your garden.
Bokashi One composts all food waste including, meat, fish, dairy, citrus, onions, eggshells, cooked, raw and processed foods.
Bokashi One composting is a responsible step to take to make a difference and to direct food waste away from landfill.
The system is practical, simple and easy to use and it’s terrific for your garden.
Bokashi One Bucket
The Bokashi One Bucket reduces the need for an outside compost pile and is easier to maintain than a worm farm. The bucket is 410mm high, 310mm wide and 300mm deep, stores neatly under the kitchen sink. The Bokashi Bucket can hold approximately 19 litres of food waste.
The airtight lid ensures an ideal environment for anaerobic fermentation to take place while controlling odours and deterring flies. Placing the plastic grate inside the bucket and then piling food waste on top of it separates the food waste from the liquid that accumulates at the bottom of the bucket. This liquid can be easily drained through the tap and used as a nutrient-rich fertiliser for the garden.
The Bokashi One is a green choice for today’s living.
