Have you misplaced your Bokashi bin strainer? Or are looking at doing your own bokashi bin and need a strainer?
The strainer is the loose item that sits on the bottom of the 25L bokashi recycling bin and its aim is to separates the food waste from the liquid generated.
Fit the five legs into the strainer and pop into the bin.
Make sure the strainer will fit into your bin: Diameter of the strainer is 276mm and it sits 55mm up from the bottom of the recycling bin.
Be gentle when lightly mashing the food waste when adding into the bin; if you are too vigorous you could bend the legs on the strainer.
Background info: What is Bokashi you ask?
Earth Bokashi is proudly South African - it includes South African microbes and quality waste ingredient, such as sawdust (which would have ended up in landfills). Earth Bokashi neutralises fermentation odours, while delivering the right carbon and nitrogen balance to assist with fermentation.
When it is added to your food waste, it activates the microbes and starts an anaerobic (without air) fermentation process - this means the rotting of the food waste is stopped (hence its use towards smells) and the result is food waste can be more easily absorbed by soil and turned into compost.
Add a small scoop of Earth Bokashi in your compost bin with every throw-away, and the results are not just good for the earth, but good for everyone in the kitchen!
Bins and Bokashi made in South Africa.
