This no-smell, no-slime cardboard box method is a popular traditional composting technique in Japan. In fact, they just keep these boxes in their living rooms, saving them space and keeping their food scraps from ending up in landfills. We’ve simplified the process in four easy steps but if you’d like to learn more about this, there’s a post on New York Times by Hiroko Tabuchi that explains more of it. Here’s what you need to do 🌱 Use a large cardboard box and raise this on a small platform. Plastic and metal boxes aren’t recommended since they don’t let the compost breathe. 🌱 Seal gaps with duct tape and fill with coco peat and ash. 🌱 Fill up with half a kilo of veggie and fruit scraps. After one day, stir and make a space in the middle for more food scraps. Stir again the next day. 🌱 Cover with a tea or dish towel and remember to keep in a well-ventilated, sunny place. #AllTheGoodStuffatHome
