Anyone seen the new Captain America movie? Comic superhero comes to life on-screen... I thoroughly enjoyed the show and wish he was real in the light of the rising crime rate ;-)
In conjunction with Earth Day month, I would like to dedicate this post for those who care for Mother Earth. Anyone heard of Garbage Enzyme? It has been promoted a long time ago by the inventor, Dr Rosukon Poompanyong.
She has been involved in enzyme research for more than 30 years and is a pioneering farmer in organic movement and the founder of the Organic Agriculture Association in Thailand.
The benefits of Garbage Enzyme are countless. In the garden, the enzyme can be a natural pesticide, soil improver as well as an organic fertiliser. It converse ammonia to nitrate, a nutrient that would help boost fruit and vegetable quality and increase agriculture output.
The organic substance can also be utilised as an air and water purifier, household cleaning agent, insecticide, natural antiseptic and also to remove debris that have clogged the pipes or toilet bowls.
To make the enzyme, start by cutting fruit peels into small pieces and dung them into prepared sugar water. If you do not have enough peels at one go, you can top it up later to achieve a final ratio of 1 part sugar, 3 parts kitchen waste and 10 parts water.
Mark the start date of the production time on a self-stick label.
Release gas to prevent the bottle from bursting as the mixture will produce gases that increase pressure within the bottle. Open the cap daily for the first month and when necessary for the rest of the brew time.
After at least 3 months of fermentation period, separate the residue by filtering garbage with a strainer.
Read more about the enzyme in my article that was published in the News Straits Times today.
Ozone gas (O3) is released right from the beginning of the Garbage Enzyme fermentation. O3 reduces carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere and heavy metals in the clouds that traps heat. When heat is able to be released into space, the Earth is cooler :-D
My garden 'heart' Garbage Enzyme :-)
