Airtight bin - Bokashi Organko Essential - a new tool for every household

We are proud to present the new addition to the Bokashi Organko family - meet Bokashi Organko Essential. We believe that this is the most versatile airtight bin for bokashi composting ever made. Hence, it is definitely a tool that every household should consider using to manage organic waste responsibly in a user-friendly manner. The main reason we dare to claim that this new airtight bin for organic waste is suitable for every household is that we designed and produced it based on valuable feedback from Bokashi Organko 1 (BO1) and Bokashi Organko 2 (BO2) users.

Bokashi Organko Essential brings together the best of the two existing indoor composting bins. On one hand, it offers the family size of BO1, and on the other, a sleek modern design of BO2. Actually, let’s take a look at the input demands that our engineers considered when creating this modern bokashi composter.
