At Bokashi Bran, we know it’s no secret that our households generate a great deal of general organic food waste when we prepare and consume daily meals. Think vegetable scraps, fruit peels, eggshells, bread crusts, meat bones and of course those sometimes forgotten leftovers we happen across silently lurking in the back of the fridge.
While chucking all this in the bin is our usual practice, not many of us realise that our food waste, which ultimately ends up in a rubbish dump is not only taking up valuable space at landfill but is rather damaging to the environment. Food waste leads to the production of large amounts of methane gas exacerbating GreenHouse Gas which is the cause of global warming, plus the leachates from organic waste contaminate our groundwater.
So, what can you do to help?
Recycling Food Waste
Tackling the food waste in our households and changing our habits is a very important step in addressing this issue, wouldn’t you agree? To this end, rather a few people have already cottoned on to the idea that this can be addressed by recycling household food waste into compost which should not only result in happier gardens and healthier vegetable production but can also help save our planet from further effects of global warming.
But, for anyone who has already endeavoured to make compost from food scraps, it can be a frustrating process as not only do the food scraps smell horrendous, attract flies and other disease-carrying vermin as they start to putrefy, but the compost itself takes many months to become viable.
