International Compost Awareness Week

Written by Bokashi One on May 3rd, 2021.      0 comments

It's International Compost Awareness Week 2nd May-8th May 2021! Search for your local Composting Events Here!

We are celebrating by giving away a Bokashi One Starter Kit! Visit our instagram page for more details. 

Here at Bokashi One, we’re massive fans of composting — it’s one of the easiest things you can do to nourish your garden and reduce your food-related carbon emissions!

Approximately 50% of the rubbish Australians put in the everyday mixed-waste ‘garbage bin’ could be put to better use in the garden as compost and mulch or could be returned to agricultural land to improve soil quality. Based on 25 Council audits conducted by EC Sustainable in 2011, around 33% of the rubbish is food organics (including peelings) and about 10% is garden vegetation.

That’s why we’re celebrating International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW)! 

The Bokashi One system significantly accelerates the composting process.

Put simply, food waste is layered with a sprinkling of Bokashi One Mix, in a Bokashi One Bucket. Due to the air-tight bucket and the micro-organisms present in the Bokashi One Mix, the waste ferments, the waste does not breakdown at this stage. The micro-organisms in the mix also ensure the waste does not putrefy. To complete the composting process the waste is transferred outside and buried beneath the soil. With oxygen, the micro-organisms accelerate the breakdown of the waste, supplying soil with nutrients and life. During the fermentation process inside the bucket, the waste reduces in volume due to the water content of the waste draining to the base of the bucket where it can be tapped out. This wonderful Bokashi juice is full of nutrients and is alive with micro-organisms it can be used in the garden and around the home.
