bokashi
 n.— «Bokashi buckets: bokashi is the Japanese word for fermented organic matter, and this system is unusual because it involves both cooked and uncooked kitchen waste. Read the instructions carefully to see what you can and can’t add. It requires two buckets made with a special plastic impregnated with effective microorganisms—friendly bacteria, essentially. These start the breakdown process and work to eliminate odour.» —“Where there’s muck: a guide to composting” by Lila Das Gupta Times (London, United Kingdom) July 15, 2007.
