Reduce Your Kitchen Scraps With A Bokashi Compost Bin
Introducing our Bokashi indoor composting bins – the perfect solution for small spaces!

A Bokashi Compost Bin Produces Two Types of Compost Soil Amendments
Fermented Finished Compost
A Bokashi Compost Bin produces a unique type of organic matter – fermented compost. Unlike traditional compost, this material is not fully decomposed but is instead pickled or fermented by beneficial microorganisms.
It’s often referred to as “Bokashi pre-compost.” This special compost is not only nutrient-rich but also teeming with beneficial microorganisms. You can bury it in the soil, where it continues to decompose and enrich the ground, or you can add it to a traditional compost pile (outdoor composting) or bin to further break down and complete the composting process.
In the fermentation process, an exciting byproduct called “Bokashi tea” is created. This liquid is not only rich in nutrients but also packed with beneficial microorganisms. By draining it from the Bokashi bin and diluting it with water, you can unleash the power of a potent liquid fertilizer.
When applied to the soil or used as a foliar spray, Bokashi tea provides a quick and effective nutrient boost to your houseplants and garden. Give your plants the love they deserve with this amazing natural elixir
What Are The Benefits of Our Bokashi Compost Bins
The compact size of the Bokashi compost bin makes it a perfect fit for small kitchens, under sinks, or any convenient corner. Its unobtrusive design ensures it blends seamlessly with your living space, without compromising on aesthetics.
The Bokashi compost bin is a fantastic solution for managing various organic materials. It effortlessly handles fruit and vegetable scraps, cooked food, meat, dairy products, and even small amounts of paper or cardboard. With this level of versatility, you can compost nearly all your kitchen waste, making it an excellent choice for eco-conscious individuals.
Extremly Ease To Use
The Bokashi compost bin is an amazingly simple and effective solution for managing your food scraps. All you have to do is add your food waste, sprinkle the special Bokashi bran on top, and gently press it down. The bran is a magical ingredient that kickstarts the fermentation process, transforming your scraps into nutrient-rich compost. Keep layering in this way until the bin is full, then seal it up. The best part? No need to worry about turning or aerating the compost. It’s hassle-free and eco-friendly!
The Bokashi process offers a faster alternative to traditional composting methods. Within weeks, the organic matter in the bin undergoes a transformative journey, turning into nutrient-rich, fermented compost ready to nourish your garden or potted houseplants.
Vermicomposting With an Urbalive Worm Farm Composter

With its user-friendly design, it provides a convenient solution to reduce kitchen waste and lower your carbon footprint.

How Does It Work?
The Urbalive Wormery uses worms to break down the organic matter in your kitchen waste. The special design of the bin ensures proper airflow and moisture levels, creating a comfortable environment for these wriggly friends.
Once you add your food scraps, they are processed by the worms which turn them into nutrient-rich compost. This material can be added to your garden or used as a potting mix for your potted plants.
