I moved into a flat in 2014 and had no place for a compost heap. The only way I could compost was by using this Bokashi indoor composter. We called it the "Bokaki Bin" :-) Its really amazing that by adding a few scoops of bran, the food waste starts to ferment and is completely odorless. I would bury the contents once a month in my friend's veggie garden. Within a few weeks, it would turn completely black. We shared in using the nutrient rich soil for both our veggie gardens. I also drained the fluid and diluted it to make compost tea for my windowsill boxes of herbs and veggies. I poured the concentrated fluid down the drain to reduce food bits building up and it worked! I saved most of my food waste from going to a landfill site for the whole of 2014 and I continue to use it now. The bucket is a bit pricey but the costs are pretty low for the bran depending on where you buy it. But its so worth being able to recycle nutrients in a bucket in your own home! So I would gladly recommend it to everyone :-)
