Eco firm launches new initiative to prevent food waste with home fermentation kit
An eco-friendly firm behind a revolutionary edible food packaging initiative has now come up with an ingenious way to prevent food waste.
Founded by Róża Janusz when still a student, Scoby became an overnight success with its biological, fully edible, fully recyclable packaging created with fermentation and praised globally as a breakthrough solution to the world’s plastic problem.
Now Janusz’s eco-company MakeGrowLab has come up with Babcha Boy for preserving food.
Inspired by the increasingly popular kombucha fermented tea, Babcha Boy helps not only with the fermentation of tea, but also of local herbs, fruits and vegetables.
Writing on her website, Janusz said: “BABCHA BOY is a microbial blend that will teach you the art of fermentation that always helped humans to survive,” adding that the blend was carefully selected by the company’s “Future Farmers” who spent a lot of time observing “our microbial friends” and learning what they can do for humans.
The Babcha Boy starter was created primarily as a tool to learn about fermentation and experiment with it.
But the solution can also be a step towards a true bio revolution, a democratic approach to working with natural processes.
The set is packed in Scoby packaging so that everyone can try it and see how it composts in the garden.
The company is now working on making the technology widely available.
