Buy 6 bags and enjoy the best value on shipping, plus a 28% savings on the product cost! For our bags of bokashi, this is our most environmentally sustainable offering because it limits both shipping and packaging. We encourage you to try it.
Our premium compost accelerator (bokashi bran) is a careful mix of bran and molasses, and is infused with billions of beneficial bokashi microorganisms. It has been double fermented, using the highest quality bacterial cultures (enhanced EM1 +), to ensure that it’s teeming with billions of live microbes, ready to ferment and compost your food scraps. These beneficial microbes are proven to be a key ingredient for building healthy and productive soils, and plant roots thrive on them.
Each airtight, zip-lock style bag contains 1.75lb (800g) of carefully dried and tested bokashi bran, enough to last an average family 2 to 3 months with continuous use. 6 bags will typically be enough to last between 12 and 18 months. Our strict production process ensures that our bokashi bran is always of optimal quality and freshness, before delivering to your door.
Other uses of bokashi bran
Microbe rich bokashi bran has multiple other household uses! In addition to building better soil, you can also:
- dig it into existing compost piles to help re-invigorate them (this is especially popular during the colder winter months). With the addition of bokashi, life quickly returns to the pile, greatly speeding up the pile’s activity and quality of compost.
- see great results by adding it directly to the garden as a soil enhancer. Simply dig in a cup of bokashi per cubic foot of soil before planting into your garden or potting containers. The bokashi provides perfect conditions for plant root development.
- add it to kitty litter boxes, animal cages and outhouses to help control odors. Simply sprinkle the bokashi bran in these areas for a noticeable difference.
Storing bokashi bran
Bokashi bran is best stored in an airtight container, out of direct sunlight, and within a few degrees of room temperature. When stored correctly, our bokashi bran will remain fully active for up to 18 months. Our bokashi bags are zip-lock style, and can be considered as airtight for storage.
We choose our packaging carefully, always use materials that are recyclable, and avoid unnecessary packaging for all of our shipments. Our bokashi bran bags are made from 100% LDPE and are fully recyclable, where facilities exist. This is the same material as plastic grocery bags, meaning that our bokashi bran bags are recyclable wherever grocery bags can be recycled. We do not use styrofoam of any kind in our packaging, nor unnecessary tapes, stickers or film wrapping. All of our items are shipped in recyclable cardboard boxes. Please re-use or recycle.
Paper bag option
Bokashi bran needs to be stored in an airtight container to maintain its effectiveness and shelf life. However, if you would like to reduce the plastic with your shipment, our premium bokashi bran can be shipped in a paper bag. The shipping time (typically 5-8 days) does not affect shelf life or usability of our bokashi bran, provided that it is transferred into an airtight container as soon as you receive it. If you would like your bokashi bagged in paper, please write ‘PAPER BAG’ in the notes field when placing an order.
