Revolutionise the way you think about composting. Using an organic fermentation process, the Bokashi Bin recycles all your domestic kitchen waste into valuable soil conditioner.

All black Bokashi bucket is made with some recycled plastic.

It could not be easier to dispose of all your waste — even dairy, meat and fish — in your kitchen, with no smell, no trip to the compost heap and no work to turn the heap.

Invented in Japan, this all-food recycling system uses effective microbes or "bokashi" — a Japanese word meaning "fermented organic matter" — to decompose the matter. The fermentation process does not produce smells, so you can keep the bucket under your sink or in your home.

The Biome Bokashi bin kit contains:
– recycling bucket with airtight lid
– 2 litre bokashi (enough to last the average family 3 to 4 weeks); & instructions.

Freight surcharge: please note that shipments of the Bokashi bin to all areas of WA, NT & TAS and some areas of SA, VIC, NSW & QLD will incur an additional freight charge. If applicable, we will check this with you before despatch.

How it works:
Every time you add waste to the bucket, you sprinkle a small amount of bokashi onto the waste (the bokashi is a fine grain like mixture). Once the container is filled to capacity (about 3 to 4 weeks for the average household), you can immediately shallow bury the fermented waste in your garden, planter or outdoor compost.
Or, you can let the waste continue to ferment for two weeks in another airtight container (such as a plastic bag or bucket with lid) and then transfer the matter into your garden. The extra fermentation means the material will break down faster in the soil.

In 2 or 3 weeks, the waste you have buried will have broken down into soil (humus) and will be rich with nutrients, microbes and enzymes, all naturally produced.

As the Bokashi bucket fills, you also drain off a liquid that can be used diluted as a fertilizer or undiluted in septic tank systems and plumbing drains (the microbes help to break down waste in the system). You can even just tip it down your sink to help keep your drains clean.

Dimensions: 30cm side x 30cm side x 45cm high. It will even fit in the cupboard under some sinks, depending on your space of course.

5L and 2L bokashi refill bags are available. You can also read more about why fermentation is better than composting under the details of the 5L Bokashi refill.

For those living in apartments, you could pass the fermented waste on to a grateful community garden, friends, relatives or the apartment gardener.

Title : Excellent for reducing food waste
Comment : All food and kitchen scraps go in here and then on the garden, it’s great! Now I only have one small bag for the general rubbish bin each week which is so much better for the planet! Best way to compost I think, and it can live inside!

Title : Easy composting in your kitchen
Comment : This composting solution is awesome. I live in a townhouse with a tiny garden so there isn’t really enough room for a full blown composting system, and let’s face it, I’d rather have a tree take up that space. All of my fruit and veg scraps go in the bin but I admit I haven’t been brave enough to try putting meat or dairy products in it, though apparently you can. Sprinkle some bokashi mix over it every couple of times you throw scraps in there and she’ll happily ferment away (don’t worry, it doesn’t smell with the lid on) until it’s full and ready to be buried. I usually just pick a sad or sunken patch of lawn, dig a shallow hole, dump it in and cover it up with dirt as this serves a double purpose of propping up the sunken patch and enriching the soil.
