Eco-friendly Compost kit

Starting a compost bin is one of the easy things you can do at home to reduce food waste while transforming it into organic fertilizers to nourish your plants. Here is a simple step-by-step guide to make your own compost at home.​

Materials

Compost Bag

2B POWDER

Bokashi Powder

Tools

Step by step guide

Set up the compost bag and place it standing into a small basin.

Place a layer of brown matter at the bottom of the compost bag. You may use dried leaves, twigs, dried grass clipping, coconut coir, peatmoss or soil.

Next, place a layer of drained food scraps on the brown matter. (optional) Tear or cut the food scraps into finer pieces to help speed up the breakdown.

Sprinkle one tablespoon of Bokashi power on top of the food scraps.

Add another layer of brown matter. Then compress everything by pressing on the top layer to release any trapped air.

Then, zip the bag and store it in a shady area.

Repeat steps 3-7 whenever you want to add new kitchen scraps.
* Using your rake, turn the compost pile at least once a week.

How to check if the compost pile is doing well?

It should not have a foul smell. If it does smell, it may indicate that the compost is lacking microbial activity or it may be too wet.

Drain out the liquid and add more brown matter into the pile and remember to turn the compost pile more frequently.

After 2-3 months your compost should be ready and you may now use it as fertilizer for your plants!
