Hello everyone! !
There's about half a month left this year... The number of winter events is increasing, and it's becoming an exciting season😌
My mother seems to be interested in composting lately, so I was thinking of composting as a Christmas present this year.
However, from my mother, I'm curious, but I don't know how to use it, so I can't use it...
Recently, we have been receiving a lot of inquiries from customers about how to use compost and what to put in it, so econawa staff made compost for a month while taking a record of their growth 🌿
First of all, what is compost? ?
For those who say, please check out this blog that was serialized in the past! !
Today, I made compost indoors for about a month using the bamboo fiber compost that Eco Nawa sells as a product! ! !
The soil used in the composter can be rice bran, field soil, or compost from cow or bird droppings. If you use the fungal bed or fermentation promoter that promotes fermentation that we used, it will be decomposed quickly, but it will be a little more expensive than usual.
You can buy soil for composting at home centers.
First, line the bottom of your compost with newspaper or paper.
After that, add enough soil so that the paper is no longer visible. Repeat the process of adding soil and garbage to the compost for about a week, and leave it for about a month after the compost is full.
If you don't mix the mixture from the bottom every 2-3 weeks during the month, water will accumulate at the bottom, which may cause odors. The point is to do! !
Other than that, I don't particularly add soil or garbage, so leave it alone! ! !
After about a month, the raw garbage that had remained in the form until now was composted and remained in solid form, which was no different from soil!
If the compost is fermented well, the odor is almost negligible, but if you add food waste or rotten food that is not suitable for composting, it's a different story.
The compost will produce a very foul odor.
In order to prevent this from happening, we will introduce good and bad things to put in the compost, so please refer to it!
What to put in your compost
Rice, vegetables, fruit, bread, noodles, coffee grounds, tea leaves, egg flakes
What not to put in the compost
Growing plants, fruit seeds, salty foods, dairy products, fats, greases, oils, meat, meat scraps, fish bones
It is difficult to decompose, and it may cause a bad smell, so be careful!
In addition, egg shells and skins such as onions were not decomposed until the end.
Overall, I felt that chopping it up and putting it in the compost allowed more food waste to be composted faster!
This time, I used compost indoors, but I was most surprised that the compost didn't smell at all, perhaps because of the effect of the activated carbon filter! !
We recommend replacing the filter once every 3 to 4 months, but after use, it can be composted by finely chopping it and putting it in the compost.
I made a video of this month's record and uploaded it to the Instagram reel, so please check it out as well😌❣️
Thank you for reading this time to the end! ! !
I would be happy if you could look forward to the next article 😆
