Prevent a smelly food waste bin with a proper indoor composter

No one likes dealing with a smelly food waste bin. That’s a fact. And, as if the bad smell alone wasn’t challenging enough, there are flies and other insects that the rotting organic waste attracts. Not to mention the smelly liquid that somehow always ends on the floor or on our hands. Yack. Just thinking about it is highly unpleasant. However, what if we told you that you’ve been dealing with your organic waste all wrong? And more importantly, there is a neat solution available that helps you prevent a smelly food waste bin. Moreover, it also doesn’t attract flies. Thanks to an ancient method, you can say goodbye to your smelly food waste bin for good.

No more smelly food waste bin, thanks to the bokashi method

The bokashi method is an ancient way of handling organic waste. These days it is known as bokashi composting, though it is not a composting process - it is fermentation. As such, the bokashi method exploits a special kind of beneficial or effective microorganisms (EM) that thrive in the absence of air. Thus, the anaerobic process converts properly collected organic waste into new resources.

Furthermore, the bokashi fermentation creates highly acidic conditions. Hence, this “composting” method is able to process even the material that traditional composting can’t. This means one can use a proper bokashi composting bin to collect basically all food scraps, including meat, dairy products, and even pets’ hair. When a high-quality bin is used, food scraps and other organic material get converted into highly-nutritious bokashi liquid and bokashi cake, which are the side product and the main product of the bokashi process.

The key benefits of the bokashi method:

  • No more smelly food waste bin.
  • No more flies and other pests around your organic waste.
  • Highly-efficient processing of a wide range of organic waste.
  • Reduction of the amount of organic waste.
  • Minimization of CO2 emissions evolving around decomposition of organic material.
  • A way to repurpose food scraps - keep them in the loop.
  • Using bokashi liquid as a natural drain cleaner and as a natural fertilizer (diluted with water in the 1:200 ratio).
  • Utilizing the bokashi cake as a soil builder by adding it to traditional composters, burying it into the soil, or mixing it with soil and using it in large plant pots.
