- 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.

71 out of 74 people would recommend this product01/04/2020, By WinnerNice big sized unit01/04/2020, By WinnerSimplifies the process29/03/2020, By Hayleyreally great product...EXCEPT the tap is very tricky to insert and it doesn't really come with instructions...
so the most useful way is pouring some hot water over the plastic combined with blunt force. After that it worked perfectly!15/03/2020, By JodieGood product but it should come with instructions on it on how to put the tap in. It was extremely difficult and ended up having to poor boiling water over the entry point28/02/2020, By Pixie~KEasy to manage, ordered 3 bins. Going to be interesting how well it composts along with the Probiotic Earth.19/02/2020, By AndreWorks well so far. Would only like the supports under the strainer to be more sturdy, as not to worry that they might break when pressing out the air from the food scraps inside.18/02/2020, By MiriamWorks great, doesn't smell at all. I collect food waste in a container in the fridge throughout the day and only open the bin once. Very happy with this solution.04/02/2020, By MARLENEBin leaked around tap fitting, found brown smelly liquid all over the kitchen floor. Tap did not seal properly even though we took great care inserting tap03/02/2020, By AlexEasy to understand and very thorough instructions so it was quick to set up. I'm loving how much of my food waste I can recycle! It is also very easy upkeep (I have two bins to alternate which the one is full).23/01/2020, By LillyWorks great, my mom loves it!16/01/2020, By LisaSo far so good. We produce so much less waste now that we use the Bokashi bin. And after it's done fermenting, we put it on our compost heap and it breaks down SO quickly. So happy with how little waste we are producing overall as a family with all the other recycling we also do, and now THIS.14/01/2020, By SupportFree compost26/12/2019, By PennyI am enjoying this. Simple to use. Air tight and no bad smells. Will be buying a second one soon.14/12/2019, By LaraThis is my second bucket because the first one needs to rest now.
I am very happy with it.
Seals very well, doesnt allow bad smell to come out but my bokashi never has juice :(Not happy, the acid runoff has actually eroded the plastic at the bottom which means I have to deal with continuous smelly leakage25/11/2019, By NoshiI was very happy initially but the product has started leaking. It seems the acid waste runoff is actually eroding through the plastic. So now I have a smelly mess to deal with. I have the green vizion Bokashi bin and haven’t experienced any issues with that. Perhaps since the plastic on that one seems way more durable21/11/2019, By BellaI am so happy with this product and so proud that I can make good use of all the kitchen waste. Its a nice and clean method to use in the kitchen. I got about 2L of liquid fertiliser from each bin and am about to dig out my first compost. Really easy and rewarding system.08/11/2019, By AENGreat product, prefer the round shape over the older square shape. Very durable!06/11/2019, By LisaSo far so good. Amazing how much food goes into the bin! I'm glad I'm using it in a productive way. Can't wait to reap the benefits!13/10/2019, By ShereenEasy to put together, good size and really great idea of a product.30/09/2019, By LeratoBought 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 BokukaIt’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 it12/09/2019, By VThis 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 AmiExactly what I wanted, although I struggled with to insert the "tap"03/09/2019, By JanaLove 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 ChristyI 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 CarleeI 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!22/07/2019, By "Go Organic"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 AzzyI'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 soon21/07/2019, By CecileWorks 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 longer21/07/2019, By KellyThis 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 JanaI 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 CatherineReally easy to use composting system. No odours or flies! I love it!07/07/2019, By ElaineSo easy to use. Makes composting a breeze, and handily right in your kitchen.
Absolutely no odours or flies.27/06/2019, By NicoletteSo 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 TaylaOwing 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 AmeliaWe 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 SuzetteGreat 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 ShezExcellent product. Sturdy, well made, well priced. We love it...now have 2!
Love that it is made in SA.12/06/2019, By NicoletteI am totally getting myself a 2nd bin!! These are super awesome bins - no smells, no flies, no mess - no fuss!20/05/2019, By lollaQuick 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 MadnixThis works very well with no smell as long as you use enough Bokashi. Not got much tea from it?08/05/2019, By ShezVery impressed with product and pricing03/05/2019, By RoxanneThis 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 ShanéSuch 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 RowenaIt's so good to know that we are giving back to the earth. I'm loving our bokashi bins04/03/2019, By SianThis 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 GillStruggled to get the one tap in the bottom. Otherwise all is well and I’m sure my plants are going to thank me22/02/2019, By ZsuzIt'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 SusanI'm excited to join the Bokashi family and look forward to a much happier, healthier garden!23/01/2019, By AmyGreat product and easy to use even on a small property.21/01/2019, By JessicaThis was so much fun to do and so simple as well! Highly recommend12/12/2018, By ChrissyThe 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 YumnaIt is a good size, and much cheaper than alternative Bokashi bins I've seen.09/11/2018, By AngelSo 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 MegzI 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 JimGreat product25/10/2018, By EliznaWe 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 MelissaWe 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 CindyFeels great doing my bit for the environment.20/08/2018, By Michelle LouiseThis 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 KathrynWe 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 LizzyHi everyone,
Please can you help me by explaining how this works and what I will need? Also, what foods can be recycled?
Thank you30/07/2018, By mbaliOh 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 it27/05/2018, By RitaWe 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 AngeliqueVery nice and convenient.14/04/2018, By JenniferWe 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 DawnEasy 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 FSThis is a huge help with household composting. We just got a third one.31/03/2018, By ZonelleFantastic, your garden will love you for this!22/03/2018, By Sherryworks well; would definitely recommend.05/03/2018, By LindieI 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 SamEssential to have in the kitchen08/07/2017, By SueI love this system and how easy it is to use. Well worth the initial outlay!25/06/2017, By AyandaI'm long overdue for a 3rd one.
