How to recycle food waste at home?

Due to scientific research about the human impact on the planet, followed by increased environmental awareness, education campaigns, and political will, a lot of us have already adopted the practice of separating and recycling the waste produced in our households. We were wondering, is there anything else we can improve in the way we manage our waste to make it more efficient, circular, and user-friendly? How to recycle food waste at home is, by all means, a topic worth exploring, especially because when done correctly, it will cause a switch in the way we see and treat waste.

With the bokashi composting, firstly, the food waste amount decreases therefore lowering the costs of waste transportation on a municipal level. Secondly, in the process of fermentation, our food waste, i.e., kitchen scraps, is turned into a precious organic matter – a great base for high-quality soil that will eventually reward us with healthy, abundant crops. And the circle is complete.

At Skaza, we recently developed the perfect bin for collecting and handling organic waste – Organko Daily

Recycling food waste at home can be messy and time-consuming, which is why most people don’t do it consistently. There is a lot of food waste created every day, and the question that arises is where to store it, even more so if you don’t own a garden and a compost pile. At Bokashi Organko by Skaza, we recently developed the perfect bin for collecting and handling organic waste – Organko Daily. It will soon turn into one of the most indispensable pieces of kitchen equipment that will support your eco-friendly lifestyle.

6 steps to recycle food waste at home with the help of Organko Daily

Prepare meals

Assemble all the ingredients you need to create a healthy and balanced meal, full of nutrients and great flavor. Peel, cut, dice, and chop everything according to the recipe. Don’t worry about the mess; we’ve got you covered.

Fill Organko Daily

Gather all the kitchen scraps (peels, cuttings, leftovers, and other food waste) and put them in Organko Daily that’s conveniently sitting on your kitchen counter.

Once the Organko Daily is full, you simply empty once a day to a larger Bokashi Organko composter

Close the lid

Make sure that the smell of food waste won’t spread across the kitchen by closing the lid. This will also prevent the flies from flying all over your scraps and make your kitchen look extra tidy and neat.

Empty it singlehandedly

Once the Organko Daily is full, you simply empty once a day to a larger Bokashi Organko composter, a compost pile, or the classic organic waste container. This way, the fermentation process will be even better. The best thing about this container is that you can empty it with just one hand due to its clever design.

Wash it

The next step is to disassemble it and put it in the dishwasher. With its smooth inner surface and rounded edges, the cleaning will be a piece of cake. Moreover, all parts are dishwasher safe, so you won’t have to deal with all the mess. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
