Say goodbye to the old, smelly compost heap at the bottom of the garden – the Food Waste Digester from Earth Probiotic is designed to make composting quicker, simpler and so much easier on the nose! This airtight 25L composter can be used indoors, which makes it ideal for properties with limited space. Simply toss in your kitchen scraps, sprinkle in a layer of Earth Probiotic Bokashi Bran, then sit back and wait for the composting magic to happen. The Food Waste Digester is made with recycled materials and can be used to ferment a huge range of food scraps.

Description
  • Made from recycled plastics
  • Includes an internal strainer to separate liquid leachate from solid food waste
  • Includes a tap for extracting that nourishing compost tea (Bokashi juice)
  • This composting system can be used to ferment bread, dairy, bones, citrus and even seafood and meat!

How does it work? Bokashi bran is full of beneficial microorganisms that help to ferment food scraps; the process is anaerobic (it takes place without air), breaking down your kitchen waste into nutrient-rich soil food without letting it rot or releasing a bad odour. When your scraps have been fermented, you can use the end product to enrich your garden soil or worm farm. This is such a simple way to make your household more sustainable, and use your kitchen waste in an eco-friendly way. 

When you use a Bokashi composting system to “digest” your food waste, you’ll also get a nutrient-rich liquid fertiliser known as compost tea, which is ideal for giving your garden and indoor plants a healthy boost (dilute 1:300).

Please Note: Once a Food Waste Digester is full, it will need to stand unopened for a 2-week period to complete the fermentation process. Ideally your kitchen should have 2 Earth Probiotic Food Waste Digesters, so you can use one while the other is left to stand.

Easy to put together, good size and really great idea of a product.

Bought this for the first time not sure how this thing works and did not buy the Bran to sprinkle over the food waste. I struggled to insert the tap but left the Bin outside in the sun for ten minutes then I managed.
29/09/2019, By Bokuka
It’s my first time composting so I went with this bucket because I can use the composting tea on my herbs due to the tap on the bottom. Right now I love it
12/09/2019, By V
This is the second bokashi I have purchased so that I can continue whilst waiting for the final 2 week ferment. The tap was really difficult to insert but I guess that provides a snugger fit.
05/09/2019, By Ami
Exactly what I wanted, although I struggled with to insert the "tap"
03/09/2019, By Jana
Love the product - will buy another one, but fill it fast! A Big Stink if you don't fill it up within a month or two.
26/07/2019, By Christy
I absolutely love this clever creation! No more food waste going into normal rubbish and absolutely NO smell from the bucket! Can’t wait for my first tea and compost to be ready next week. I ordered another Bokashi which I use now while my other one is composting!
Highly recommend this product. Very easy to store.
Note that you need to purchase the Bokashi bran separately.
25/07/2019, By Carlee
I love my bokashi, but I wish the tap was a bit lower down. I struggle to get the bokashi tea drained properly, and have to tilt the bin. Otherwise, it's wonderful. Big enough and also does not smell!

The health of our human Microbiome, is no different to the health of our soils Microbiome! As such, composting and a garden "free of all harmful" Herbicides, Pesticides and Insecticides is the norm in my garden!

It was a magical day when Faithful to Nature recently had a special on the Earth Probiotic Bokashi Bins and Earth Bokashi Bran! Without hesitation I immediately purchased 2 x 25L“Earth Probiotic Bokashi Recycling Bins and Earth Bokashi Bran to allow for rotational Bokashi Bin composting!

Excellent dual composting and liquid fertilizer concept! The quality of the Bins and Tap fittings are of a high standard! The enclosed Bokashi and Assembly Brochures are informative and "user friendly"






22/07/2019, By Azzy
I'm so excited for my first compost tea! The bin is easy to set up and to use, and I love that my scraps can now be put to good use. Definitely going to get another one soon
21/07/2019, By Cecile
Works very well - have bought 3 to be able to keep adding kitchen scraps while the full ones can do their "work" for 2 weeks or longer
21/07/2019, By Kelly
This product is reasonably priced, easy to use and reduces waste that would normally go into a rubbish bin. It is small enough that it can fit in your kitchen and once full be placed outside for the two weeks required. I am very happy with this product and have already recommended it to others.
12/07/2019, By Jana
I just got my Bokashi and I was so excited to start collecting food waist! The set up was quick and easy. Will definitely purchase a second one to alternate while fermentation is in progress. Thanks FTN!!
11/07/2019, By Catherine
Really easy to use composting system. No odours or flies! I love it!
07/07/2019, By Elaine
So easy to use. Makes composting a breeze, and handily right in your kitchen.
Absolutely no odours or flies.
27/06/2019, By Nicolette
So I got my first bin and it works so well - I just had to get another one. My first bin is composting away and my kitchen is clean. No smells!
21/06/2019, By Tayla
Owing to the fact that I live in an apartment, composting was never a viable option for me. I'm so grateful that this Bokashi bin makes composting a practice that is accessible to everyone. The container is easy to set up, and leaves NO odour in my flat once the lid is closed.
20/06/2019, By Amelia
We are a family of six so our bucket filled up quickly and I had to buy another one. As a result the first bucket is now in its two week decomposing stage and bucket number two is in the kitchen. The kids have been amazed at how much food we waste so we are looking at ways to reduce food waste so that we don’t fill our bucket up before the other bucket is free again.
19/06/2019, By Suzette
Great product for someone who goes on a quilt trip every time food goes too waste. We had a little trouble fixing the tap to the bucket, but this at least gave me the reassurance that it is not going to leak.
Tip# Place the bottom half (the piece that must enter the bin) of the tap in warm (boiled) water as too soften the plastic, thus making it much easier to fit on the bin.
17/06/2019, By Shez
Excellent product. Sturdy, well made, well priced. We love it...now have 2!
Love that it is made in SA.
12/06/2019, By Nicolette
I am totally getting myself a 2nd bin!! These are super awesome bins - no smells, no flies, no mess - no fuss!
20/05/2019, By lolla
Quick service from FtN as always. I have used this system now for 4 days and it has made a massive difference to the amount of waste in my garbage bin. It does not smell at all, is easy to assemble. I can see in this short period already how much less garbage bags I will be using!
09/05/2019, By Madnix
This works very well with no smell as long as you use enough Bokashi. Not got much tea from it?
08/05/2019, By Shez
Very impressed with product and pricing
03/05/2019, By Roxanne
This is the 3rd bin I have purchased. (I gave 2 away as gifts). Everyone has been happy so far, so I purchased one for myself. I have been using the product for a month now and it says to regularly drain off nutrient rich Bokashi tea, however I have not had any tea yet. I hope that I am using it correctly. The actual Bokashi Probiotic has an interesting smell, so I keep it in the garage. And the food waste has zero bad odour (Sweet Fermented Smell) so I am happy.
10/04/2019, By Shané
Such a simple way to have a waste-free kitchen, while feeding your garden at the same time. Great investment for the home.
25/03/2019, By Rowena
It's so good to know that we are giving back to the earth. I'm loving our bokashi bins
04/03/2019, By Sian
This is great if you want a compost heap but you want it to be as mess-free as possible. I really like the tap at the bottom. It seals well.
26/02/2019, By Gill
Struggled to get the one tap in the bottom. Otherwise all is well and I’m sure my plants are going to thank me
22/02/2019, By Zsuz
It's a nice size if you do not have a huge garden, relatively easy to assemble (I struggled with the tap at the bottom. the "10 mins in the sun" suggestion didn't work, so I lit a candle, that helped).
So far no smells and easy use!
31/01/2019, By Susan
I'm excited to join the Bokashi family and look forward to a much happier, healthier garden!
23/01/2019, By Amy
Great product and easy to use even on a small property.
21/01/2019, By Jessica
This was so much fun to do and so simple as well! Highly recommend
12/12/2018, By Chrissy
The bin fills up fast if you like to eat your daily veg and fruit, so best to buy 2 bins. Really does what it says. No smell. My llants love the compost tea.
13/11/2018, By Yumna
It is a good size, and much cheaper than alternative Bokashi bins I've seen.
09/11/2018, By Angel
So far so good, been using v the bin for a week now. Odour free and easy to get used to using.
Thank you for bringing awareness.
06/11/2018, By Megz
I love this recycling bin, and am so excited to have gotten started with home composting, It's still early days, but the bin is a great size big enough but still compact enough to store indoors, it seals great so no smells. I love that my kids are also learning to reduce waste and live more mindful of the environment, this might be a small start but its and easy start to what might seem like a daunting task of living more green.
25/10/2018, By Jim
Great product
25/10/2018, By Elizna
We have two, works well. Quick to get used to using it. We also have the Compost bag from Earth Probiotic to turn the food waste and garden waste into compost! Definitely recommend!
17/10/2018, By Melissa
We have been using the Bokashi system for just over a month and it has greatly reduced our waste to landfill, I especially love the fact that meat and bones can also be fermented. No bad smells and we have already started treating our garden with the tea. We purchased two bins and are now patiently awaiting our first batch of compost.
13/10/2018, By Cindy
Feels great doing my bit for the environment.
20/08/2018, By Michelle Louise
This is a great buy and a perfect way to keep the flow of giving back to the soil. And it really doesn't smell bad at all. What's really great is that you can add all of your food scraps, not just fruit and veg.
04/08/2018, By Kathryn
We keep this bin in our kitchen and add our daily food waste once a day. No bad smells, no hassle. The two tubs of bokashi meal have lasted at least four months! The end product then gets added to our larger compost outside after its done its thing. Love having a use for our food waste. Wonderful product!
02/08/2018, By Lizzy
Hi everyone,
Please can you help me by explaining how this works and what I will need? Also, what foods can be recycled?
Thank you
30/07/2018, By mbali
Oh Wow I like this though it is a bit small since I use a lot of fruit and veggies everyday as a vegan but overall it is good to have and no ordoursrs any more that I am excited about it
27/05/2018, By Rita
We just love our Earth Bokashis, I would recommend that you buy two so that you can alternate between bins. Also a good tip, we use old yoghurt containers to throw everything in at first (which we then keep in the fridge) so that we only open our Bokashi every two days to make sure that it is not constantly exposed to air.

We never realised just how much food we were throwing away that could be perfectly good compost. No stinky refuse bins anymore which is fantastic!
18/05/2018, By Angelique
Very nice and convenient.
14/04/2018, By Jennifer
We have been recycling our leftovers in our compost for a while now, but having this bucket and Bokashi makes it SO much easier!
11/04/2018, By Luka Dawn
Easy to assemble, easily integrated into my family and my daily life.
Fills up quite quickly, definitely going to need a second one to use during the 2 week fermentation process. I would recommend buying two from the start so that there is no lag between compost hauls.
11/04/2018, By FS
This is a huge help with household composting. We just got a third one.
31/03/2018, By Zonelle
Fantastic, your garden will love you for this!
22/03/2018, By Sherry
works well; would definitely recommend.
05/03/2018, By Lindie
I bought two of these for a family member but ended up keeping one since the bin had a leaking tap. The staff here at Faithful to nature sorted it out real quick with the suppliers and the replacement parts was delivered to my door within a few days. My other Bokashi bin is much smaller and fits great into my small kitchen. I now use this much bigger extra bin to store the bokashi in the garage once my kitchen bin is full. After 2 additions I store for an additional 2 weeks before feeding to my worms and working into my soil. Happy Happy happy.
30/11/2017, By Sam
Essential to have in the kitchen
08/07/2017, By Sue
I love this system and how easy it is to use. Well worth the initial outlay!
25/06/2017, By Ayanda
I'm long overdue for a 3rd one.
