So when a week later Teraganix agreed to send me one of their Bokashi Food Waste Recycling Systems to review. I was pretty pumped to have an alternative method for the summer or at least until I could get myself another batch of my worms. "'Bokashi' is Japanese for fermented organic matter and the EM•1® Bokashi method does just that!
Because their Bokashi compost system utilizes rice bran the smell is lessened drastically making it easier for people living in apartments or smaller homes to still compost! The beneficial microbes help break down food waste faster and more efficiently. There are two kits you can choose from one which is more hands off and the other allows for (from what I can tell) quicker results by sifting and allowing drainage.
Personally I feel the drainage from these buckets is liquid gold for my plant babies! Gross - yes, but works just like miracle grow and fertilizer without all the costs of buying it or the chemicals that go into making it! And once everything in your bucket is fermented, all you do is add it to your garden soil.
Because it even suggested it, I wanted to give it a try in our litter box to help with smells since ours is kept in the master bathroom. After a few days I noticed that I couldn't notice the litter box smells as easily and I haven't noticed the cat getting pissed about something new being in there either!
Cost/Available to purchase: $36.99 Bokashi Food Waste Recycling System
Recommendation: I would obviously recommend this to anyone trying to go green and reduce waste from their home. This is such a low maintenance and inexpensive way to make that change and difference if your willing!
Giveaway: TeraGanix is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's lucky readers a 2lb bag of EM Bokashi Powder of their own!
