Vokashi Makes Great Coverage

I’m thrilled to be on air with Maxine… Her program is a testament to the creativity of hundreds of Brooklynites…
Ms. Cornwell composts in her apartment using a Japanese method called bokashi. She pays $40 a month to a small company called Vokashi, which provides a five-gallon container and a mixture of bran and microbes. The mixture breaks down the food by fermenting it, so there is little smell. The company replaces the container each month.
12:27 – …She gives people a five-gallon container and she uses a mixture of bran and microbes that mixes with the scraps then the company picks up the containers every week or every month and gives new ones…
0:35 – …Rather than letting food Waste rot–which is what would happen if food waste is left out in the air–you use a bran inoculated with these beneficial microorganisms that begin to pickle the food waste….
…I loved that we were able to put meat, dairy and pretty much everything else into the Vokashi…
…Nobody wants rotting food or smells. It is dangerous and a health hazard. Being able to store food waste that is preserved rather than rotting is a game changer.
…the unobtrusive method produces soil that could fill community gardens or revitalize worn or contaminated soils around the city.
