Bokashi Bran | 1 kilo

BOKASHI BRAN 1 KILO 

Bokashi is a means to process organic waste into nutrient-rich soil. Bokashi bran is rice bran inoculated with microbes that break down organic waste. It is used in tandem with a Bokashi bucket to ferment kitchen scraps, for faster composting.

Our bran isn't homemade. Unlike most Bokashi products available in the market, you will only need 1 - 2 teaspoons of our bran for every kilo of food waste you produce. Our bran is manufactured in Ilocos by Harbest Agribusiness Corporation. We are an official distributor of theirs.

One order is inclusive of one kilo of Bokashi bran. Please see product and shipping information in the tabs below. 

Bokashi bran is inoculated with microorganisms such as Lactic acid bacteria (Lactobacillus spp.), yeasts (Saccharomyces spp.), photosynthetic bacteria (Rhodopseudomonas spp.). These microbes break down organic waste in a controlled environment (i.e. a Bokashi bucket) through fermentation. Once fermented, kitchen scraps can easily be composted indoors without any putrid odours or pests, and in a short amount of time. Organic waste is turned into nutrient-rich loam soil within a matter of weeks. 

We have written an article on how to use Bokashi to turn kitchen waste into nutrient rich soil amendments:

Our bran is manufactured in Ilocos by Harbest Agribusiness Corporation. Unlike other Bokashi products available in the market, you will only need 1 - 2 teaspoons of this bran for every kilo of food waste you produce.

Each kilo of bran is stamped with the date of manufacture. Best before date would be one year after the stamped date, though technically, Bokashi never really expires. You can keep using the bran even years later. The bag should just be stored in a cool, dry place, and kept away from direct sunlight.

This product comes from the manufacturer packaged in single-use plastic. This to protect the product from moisture, contamination, and saprophytic insects. We are offering our patrons the option to personally pick the product up and bring their own containers. If you wish to do this, you may select the "I will pick the product up" shipping option during checkout. We will schedule the date and time of pickup with you, transfer the bag's contents into your container, and assume full responsibility over the reuse/recycling of its packaging.

PICK UP

We allow personal pick-ups. Our pick-up location is within Salcedo Village, Makati City. The specific address will be provided to you when you select the PICK UP option during checkout. You may also book with a courier service (i.e. Grab / Lalamove / Angkas / Mr. Speedy / etc.) of your own choosing to pick the items up.


SHIPPING

LOCAL DELIVERY
We ship across Metro Manila via Grab / Lalamove / Angkas / Mr. Speedy / etc. Shipping rates vary and are based on your zip code. The "Local delivery" option will be visible upon checkout if your delivery address is within the areas we service.

NATIONWIDE SHIPPING
We now also ship parcels nationwide on a weekly basis via Blitz/LBC. The total weight of your order must be under 2 kilos, and should not include any perishable / food / plant products.

PACKAGING

Please expect all items to be packaged in very minimal used / recycled / secondhand paper bags or cardboard boxes. We try to minimize our carbon footprint where we can, when we can, and as much as we can, and avoid procuring new packaging materials for our products.

All single-use packaging materials, no matter how "eco-friendly," take an inordinate amount of resources (e.g. water, fuel, electricity, trees, etc.) to manufacture. This is why we prefer to solicit used paper bags and boxes via Buhay Zero Waste Preloved, an online decluttering and dumpster-diving platform that we run.Our parcels won't always look pretty, but they have a much much smaller impact on the environment than parcels that use brand new "eco-friendly" packaging materials.
