Bokashi Official Stockist

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 41cm 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.

Great gift idea

I got this as a gift for someone looking into dealing with food waste. I think they really liked it!

A revelation!

If you're a black thumb and composting is a talent that eludes you, then this is a really great system. It's so straight-forward. My rubbish bin seems positively empty now too! I never realised just how much of my waste was food scraps.

No Smell!!!

Easy to use. It seals very tightly so there’s no smell, you can even keep it in your kitchen.

Highly recommend for the kitchen waste

Our rubbish bin is practically empty now since getting the Bokashi and our garden is lovin it.
We keep it in the kitchen cupboard under the sink and have issues with smells etc. I’d recommend getting 2 so you have one to fill while the other one is fermenting.
