Bokashi RTS Bran EM Kitchen Composter

Bokashi Kitchen Composter: 2 Containers

The Bokashi kitchen composter is design for moderate amounts of kitchen food scraps. Using this system, it is now possible for urban dwellers to divert their waste stream from traditional end points (landfills and water treatment facilities) and lower the impact on the natural world - without the need for a yard or garden. With the assistance of beneficial microbes and bokashi bran, food scraps are broken down anaerobically in an air-tight vesicle. The process is very similar to brewery fermentation and occurs faster than traditional outdoor composting.  Finished compost is an excellent soil amendment and the juice, once diluted, can be utilized as a liquid fertilizer for acid loving plants.  Kit comes with everything you need to get started.

This price includes two containers plus a single scoop, compressor and bokashi bran packet.  Shipped collectively in 1 box, reducing per unit cost and per unit shipping fee. COLOR: GRAYISH BLACK

Compact.  For city dwellers that do not have a yard or garden but still long to compost their food scraps, the Bokashi Kitchen Composter is the ideal kit for small spaces.  Easily fitting under the sink or tucked away in the pantry, this 5-gallon system features a fold–back carrying handle that allows for easy transport. 

Air Tight Design.  The Bokashi Kitchen Composter has a snap fitting lid that keeps moisture and odors locked away.  No aeration with oxygen in required; the beneficial microorganisms (EM) that are the decomposers use the process of fermentation to break down the scraps efficiently and quickly.    Wide aperture when open provides for convenient dumping of kitchen waste.

Rewarding and Fun.  The unit comes with a handled compressor that helps drain the liquid bokashi juice from the active pile through the internal strainer and into the liquid catchment area.  This living liquid can then be harvested with the built-in the spigot and used as a plastic fertilizer. Since the juice is naturally acidic and concentrated, dilute with fresh water and use only on acid loving plants.  For those who have friends with septic systems, the juice can be poured down the drain, helping to maintain a healthy microbe balance.

What is EM and Bokashi?  Bokashi is a dry, bran-based material that has been innoculated with EM (a mixed culture of naturally occurring friendly microorganisms). It is added as a compost activator to system to speed up the breakdown process. By placing alternating layers of food scraps and bran until the container is full, the food waste quickly ferments, allowing it to be safely composted or used as a soil amendment.
