Design meets Sustainability


Recycling your organic waste in an urban household and help yourself to install a great design stool. Have less fruit flies in your flat and reduce your walks to the common organic waste container. All this with CompBox – wooden boxes, including worms and your organic waste – producing compost.
Our customers are young professionals aged about 21-35, earning 2000-3600€/month, living in a city apartment without a garden/ balcony. They value a healthy lifestyle, do sports and like to cook for their own – besides that, a minimalistic and modern design plays an important role in their apartment. – So called LOHAS.
The main problem our customers have in common is either the lack of organic waste container or the frequent and uncomfortable way to the common organic waste bin. They are annoyed of fruit flies and the smell of rotting organic waste, that was left for a couple of days in their flat.
Now, we help our customers to avoid those problems with CompBox.
