This unique kitchen compost container
made from recycled plastic can be used in your own home to recycle kitchen waste into an organic compost soil conditioner. Use the resulting nutrient-rich compost to organically fertilize your houseplants, garden or lawn. This system ferments and recycles food waste using EM-Bokashi™
(sold separately; Effective Microorganisms) into nutrient rich compost in less than half the time of conventional composting methods, without odors!
Using Your Kitchen Composter: To compost kitchen waste, lay down an initial layer of EM-Bokashi™ (sold separately), then place fresh food waste in the compost pail. Thoroughly coat every layer with EM-Bokashi™ compost starter. Be sure to close the lid tightly after every use to ensure an anaerobic (oxygen-free) environment for composting. Once the container is filled to capacity, let the waste continue to ferment for two weeks and then transfer into your garden or planter. Allow at least two more weeks for the fermentation process to continue in the soil before planting your favorite vegetables, flowers, trees, etc. Make sure to drain the liquid released during the anaerobic process from the kitchen composter frequently to prevent putrefaction of your compost.
