Isabella uses social media a lot and was inspired by moneycoach to get on board the bokashi bandwagon.

Lisa works at Junxion Strategy which has a bokashi bucket in their company kitchen.


Being part of the solution in Abbotsford, BC

By , 12 March 2008 20:29

I found this on Vancouver Craigslist today:

Date: 2008-03-11, 9:16PM PDT

The average household sends 500lbs of kitchen waste to the landfill or down the drain each year. Be part of the solution! Let me do the work.
For only $5.00 per week I supply the pail and pick it up each week.


I think this is great idea and I wrote an email to tell them so. I also invited them to explore possible solutions for both customers and them that Biosa and Bokashi could provide.

Even if I hear nothing back, I am happy to see that it is happening in the region where I live.

One of my clients – Bentley Christie – is interviewed about composting by this online non-profit that “provides open graphic design and other services/projects.” Near the end, when Bentley talks about bokashi, they feature two of my photos. Here is one of them:

A short video from City Farmer showing how the Vancouver Aquarium has introduced full composting to their public facilities. Well done!

Client blogs about their bokashi bucket

From Digitech Laser:

We have decided to start an office composting system. We only have 13 employees so we aren’t generating a large amount of waste, but we still think we should try and cut down. Our first idea was to have a company come in and pick up our compostable materials, but after some searching we found that Vancouver doesn’t currently have this system in place. Smithrite offers this, but not for offices as small as ours. We then thought about setting up a worm bin, but from our research we think that this method can be smelly and there are a lot of materials that have to be kept out.

Then we found the “Bokashi Bucket”. It was appealing to us because it claims to have no smell, no worms, recycles all types of waste other than liquids and is small enough for in the office kitchen.

The post includes a link to my website and updates have already been posted

Thanks Nikki.

Reuters – Vermiculture in Hong Kong

Recycling is a hot issue and the numbers speak for themselves: Hong Kong’s population of almost seven million produces 15,000 tones of waste a day and landfill space is rapidly running out, with officials predicting existing sites to be saturated within three years. Source
