"Together with Janine Gutierrez, WWF-Ph National Youth Ambassador, Rayne Roque, WWF-Ph Sustainable Consumer Specialist for The Sustainable Diner Project, and Rina Papio, Green Space President, let’s learn how to divert food waste at home and how composting benefits our soil!" 

This is how it looks like when you are taking notes from a zoom webinar:

Seriously, Bokashi composting is a process of fermentation that is able to quickly convert food waste into productive compost. The microbes, yeast and fungi developed in the 2-3 week process are key in building a healthy soil structure. 

Unlike traditional back-yard composting, this can be done right in your kitchen with nothing but your leftovers and the Bokashi bran. This method works for ALL food scraps, and shouldn't give off any foul odors throughout the process. 

Once the cycle is done, you are left with compost good for your own house plants, and maybe even  some for your neighbors'!
