The Bokashi Bucket is a practical and convenient way to prevent food waste from ending up in landfill, while providing your garden with a nourishing food source and enriching microbes. This unique composting system uses the highly effective micro-organism Bokashi to create the ideal conditions for anaerobic composting, eliminating the odours and unpleasantness associated with putrefaction and decay.
You can compost almost every kitchen food waste including fresh fruit and vegetables, prepared foods, cooked and uncooked meats and fish, dairy, eggs, bread, coffee grounds, tea bags, wilted flowers and tissues. Do not include liquids or meat bones. The Bokashi Bucket composting system significantly accelerates the composting process of organic waste, producing rich compost which can be added to a conventional compost bin, or used directly in the garden, where it neutralises after 7-10 days.
A by-product of the fermentation process, Bokashi juice, is alive with effective micro-organisms and diluted with water makes a terrific fertiliser for the garden or pot plants. Around the house the concentrated Bokashi Juice can be poured directly into your kitchen and bathroom drains, toilets or septic systems to prevent algae build-up and control odour. It will also help to clean up our waterways by competing with harmful bacteria.
*Made from 70% recycled plastic, for use with Bokashi Composting Mix, sold separately.

I have subscribed to New Internationalist for over 25 years, and can vouch for its fearless, high quality reporting of the real issues all over the world. And lovely items in their shop, too!
I can certainly commend the New Internationalist for quick postage & handling - I ordered it on the web and it arrived at my door within 2-3 days, awesome compared to the usual 1 month+ with Amazon!
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
