This week on Radio Nova we looked at the versatility of the Bokashi composting bin.

What is a Bokashi Bin?

These bins are the most effective method of recycling kitchen waste, carried out in an airtight container using Bokashi as a compost activator. It is a bran-based material that has been inoculated with beneficial micro-organisms (a mix of friendly bacteria, yeast and fungi), which helps to speed up the composting process, suppress pathogens, and prevent putrefaction and foul smells.
