What is Bokashi?
Developed in Japan, Bokashi is a new and revolutionary way of fermenting your kitchen waste. Using micro-organisms, including lactoobacilli, yeasts, and phototropic microbes, Bokashi allows you to ferment practically anything, including leftover meat and fish. When done properly, this method is more akin to the same method used when pickling, with micro-organisms working on breaking down the food waste so it can be used as compost, instead of the food decomposing or rotting. Once the food waste is safe to put in the ground, soil microbes finish the work.
There are many benefits to using the Bokashi method to break down your food waste. For starters, your weekly trash quantities can be reduced by as much as 20-30% which means you'll save money on trash collection. Also, rats and other vermin aren't attracted to the buried fermented product that you will soon use to grow healthier, more vital plants. And finally, there is no smell of decomposition to worry about, nor any flies, since the sealed container keeps them away.
Quick and convenient, it only takes two weeks for the micro-organisms to break down your food waste, and you can include all types of food parts, including meat scraps or cheese. The only inconvenience is that you have to chop up large bits of waste before adding them to the system.
Safe for you, your pets, and the environment, Bokashicycle fermenting is 100% natural, helps reduce greenhouse gases that are normally involved in scrap composting, and helps reduce the amount of waste in landfills. Used worldwide, Bokashi reduces our dependency on chemical fertilizers and pesticides, helping to make us all healthier.
