Bokashi Bucket Hawaii

BOKASHI BUCKET

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that Americans waste enough food to fill the Rose Bowl stadium every day. When the end comes, use a Bokashi Bucket to compost your leftover food scraps, or start already and feel like Captain Planet as you generate nutrient-rich soil that, in turn, nourishes the food you grow. Created by Each One Teach One Farms, the Bokashi Bucket makes composting at home easy and mess-free. Harnessing the power of beneficial microbes via an anaerobic process (meaning no oxygen is involved) and fermentation, Bokashi Buckets break down compost in a way that’s completely natural and safe for people, plants, and the environment. thebokashibucket.com

KH STUDIO BODY PRODUCTS

Even if the world ends, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise your hygiene. All-natural body products from Keiko Hatano’s line, KH Studio, offers the perfect remedy. Hatano began experimenting with essential oils and natural ingredients to produce her simple, well-packaged sprays and lathers. A favorite is her refreshing, lemongrass-based body powder. You can find her products at fishcake design store in Kaka‘ako (which is where I work, for full disclosure). fishcake.us
