Take Charge of Your Food Waste with Bokashi

December 14, 2010

The new, affordable Bokashi Food Waste Recycling System makes composting kitchen food scraps easier (and more pleasant) than ever.

Alto, TX (PRWEB) December 13, 2010

TeraGanix, Inc., the exclusive US distributor for Dr Higa’s original EM”¢1® microbial inoculant products, has announced the introduction of a new, affordable Bokashi Food Waste Recycling system. This composting system helps homeowners reduce the impact of their organic waste and quickly produces a rich organic food for growing healthy plants.

The Bokashi Food Waste Recycling System is different from traditional composting. Traditional composting is an aerobic rotting process that requires labor intensive maintenance and temperatures between 140 and 160F degrees to be effective. Furthermore, the rotting process creates by-products that require the compost to be cured for many weeks before it can be used without damaging the soil. The heat also produces unpleasant gasses and depletes many nutrients, including carbon and nitrogen. Gases such as methane, carbon dioxide and ammonia give the compost pile a pungent odor. The entire process is smelly, inconvenient and attracts pests.

In contrast, Bokashi ““ Japanese for “fermented” ““ utilizes the fermentation process to break down food scraps. The Bokashi composting process uses live microbes, enzymes, trace minerals and vitamins to quickly break down the waste into nutrient rich plant food that can be used in the garden within two weeks. The process is quicker, easier and simply more pleasant to have in your home.

The Bokashi Food Waste Recycling System includes: 2 five gallon buckets (one to be used for filling with food while the other is maturing); 2 flexible translucent lids that make it easy to use and keep tabs of the progress; and 1 five pound bag of EM Bokashi organic rice bran, which is the fermenting agent. The suggested retail price for the complete kit is only $36.99, making it the most affordable and effective composting kit on the market.
