To help reduce plastic waste, we’re offering a Compost Accelerator BYOB refill option at select retailers. You can bring in your 500 mL or 1 L Compost Accelerator bottle and refill it with one of our 15 L totes! To help encourage you to reuse your existing Compost Accelerator bottle, we offer a $3 to $6 discount (15% savings) on BYOB refills!!
NOTE: online purchase of this item is redeemable for a BYOB refill only in Ottawa, Gatineau, or Wakefield area. See below for alternate BYOB refill locations at one of our retail partners who carry the 15 L Compost Accelerator container for refills.
The bokashi Compost Accelerator spray is a dynamic fermented fruit extract which contains Effective Microorganisms (EM-1) that work to ferment and help break down the kitchen scraps placed in the Urban Composter Family and Urban Composter City. It is a proprietary mixture of important probiotic, beneficial microorganisms that are known to work cooperatively to provide tremendous benefits for soil and plants. Each 500 mL (17 fl oz) bottle provides a 5-6+ month supply, depending on use, so a 1000 mL bottle will provide a 10-12+ month supply (typically more than one year).
The Compost Accelerator not only helps to ferment your kitchen scraps to allow them to break down into compost within only 6 weeks (instead of as long as a year in a regular backyard compost bin), but the bokashi juice that collects at the bottom of your Urban Composter is a fantastic fertilizer for your garden and houseplants, and it also helps to revitalize septic systems (so go ahead and flush some of it down your toilet!). This bokashi juice is VERY potent! Use it diluted 1:100 (approx. 2 teaspoons per litre of water) for watering plants or soil (yes, it’s amazing for improving soil health too), or undiluted for drains and toilets/septic systems.
A 100% organic microbe solution, the Compost Accelerator is ideal for use in bokashi bins of all types and works much better than bokashi bran.
