Main reasons to use Bokashi

by Lea charpier on August 15, 2020

Bokashi is an environmentally friendly organic product, feeding the soil through kitchen waste recycling. You just need to get your Bokashi Bin and our Bokashi Bran activator.

 

It is a GREEN initiative, resulting in:

1- EDUCATION ON HOW TO HELP SAVE OUR ENVIRONMENT

Everyone using this system is being educated about recycling food waste, the use of organic plant food, reducing landfills, use of chemical free products and thereby reducing global warming.

2- INCREASED PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR EACH OF US

Bokashi gives personal control of recycling of food waste enabling a sustainable cycle to be set up in the home. This is a simple, relatively inexpensive and rewarding way in which one can contribute towards reducing waste and regenerating nature.
It involves little effort, but enough to ensure that some personal responsibility is required, contributing to the development of a life-long interest and commitment towards protecting the environment

3- A DECREASED CARBON FOOTPRINT 

Fermenting waste is very much more efficient than composting. The process retains all the energy (rather than releasing it into the atmosphere).


All water is retained, not evaporated.
No need to use artificial fertiliser - the end product is extremely valuable as an organic soil conditioner and fertiliser. Chemical fertiliser inevitably leach through the soil into our seas and lakes affecting the marine life.


The liquid produced as a by-product is teeming with microbes and nutrients! You can dilute it and use this directly on your garden or on plants as liquid plant food.

4- INCREASED ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Help save the climate by reducing the landfills. Once foodwaste is removed from the waste stream 20% more recyclables are recovered as the non food waste component is saved from contamination by food stuff.
Use all your kitchen waste - save money spent on compost and plant food, whilst returning nutrients to the soil.
You can simply tip the liquid down the sink - the microbes will go to work on your drains and keep them clean.

On a Personal level:

  • Make fewer trips to the outside bin
  • Feed your garden - both plants and soil!
  • No bad odour due to rotting foodstuff
  • Watch your garden grow

5- DECREASED PRODUCTION OF GREENHOUSE GASES

Greenhouse gas emissions are greatly reduced during fermentation, as the amount of methane produced during conventional composting does not occur.

6- INCREASED RESIDENTS' AWARENESS REGARDING PROTECTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT

Who can use it? Anyone who has a kitchen: households, offices, schools, hospitals, restaurants 

Who should be interested? Everyone, as we all eat and therefore produce food waste

7- EASE OF USE
