- Recycles all food waste, both raw & cooked food
- No nasty smells, can be kept in your kitchen
- Best used with Green Vizion’s Food Waste Recyclers
- Add your food waste to the first recycle bin/composter and sprinkle a generous handful of Bokashi on top of the food waste.
- Alternative this each time to form layers.
- Keep the recycle bin in your kitchen and make sure the lids properly closed and airtight at all times.
- Regularly drain off the nutrient rich tea/leachate.
- Dilute this tea in water (1 part tea to 100 parts water), and water your plants or use neat to keep drains clean.
- Once the recycle bin is full, start using your second recycle bin or composter.
- Store the full bun in a convenient place indoors out of direct sunlight and regularly drain off nutrient rich bokashi tea and use as needed.
- After 2 weeks, empty the recycle bin or composter and add to your garden compost, or dig into the soil.
- You can create your own enriched soil this way.
- You can never add too much Bokashi.
- Only add fresh food waste to your bin.
- Never add rotten, or mouldy waste.
- Break, or chop large waste into smaller pieces.
- The less air that comes into contact with the waste, the better.
- Always close the lid tightly.
- Do not add water or excessive amounts of fluids.
- Do not place the bin in the sun.
- Appearance of a white growth on the surface of the waste, as well as the presence of a sweet & sour “pickled” smell are good signs.
- If foul odour occurs, this indicates decay (bad). Add significant amounts of boashi to try and reverse the process or discard the contents of the bin, and start again.
- Store at room temperature, in a dry place out of direct sunlight.
- Available In: 1kg, 2kg & 5kg

My previous compost heap was a disaster and smelt soooo bad.03/05/2019, 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.
