Hello, We are Ecobin. Established 2008 – Melbourne.
IN A NUTSHELL
Ecobin was born from humble beginnings; when CEO John Engelander noticed that unlike at home, waste wasn’t being separated in the work place. This oversight meant an enormous amount was unnecessarily going to landfill when instead at least half of it could have been recycled or composted.
Separating waste at source (the moment at which you chuck your rubbish in the bin) helps to decrease damaging greenhouse gases and the production of virgin materials.
Today our signature 4 bin waste separation system is Australia’s favourite and can be seen throughout the country in schools, offices, universities and government buildings.
Sustainability is at the core of everything we do. We consider ‘How’ we make things, because the ‘Why’ we do things is even more important.
Thank you for playing your part, by being a part of the solution.
What you see on the surface is our passion for waste separation; but beneath that lays a drive so deep that it’ll take every man, woman and child to help us achieve it.
Our approach to manufacturing is more considered than most. We think about the raw materials and how to design for least waste. We think about what then happens to that manufacturing waste. We even think about storage and transport needs and logistics, that’s why we design flatpack, so more can be stored and transported in less space lessoning our contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. Sustainability is at the core of everything we do.
CHANGING WASTE HABITS
We agree when John C. Maxwell says, “Small disciplines repeated with consistency every day lead to great achievements gained slowly over time.”. That’s why we know that in order to achieve a world of zero waste, it must first start with helping everyone to change their waste habits.
We’ve been in the industry a fair while now and we’ve seen first hand that waste separation needs to be easy or it won’t happen. Creating simplicity from complexity is what we strive to achieve in our range of products, so that implementing waste separation in the work place is a no-brainer and staff adoption is seamless. Less truely is more. More recycling. More re-using. More conscious awareness. More change for good.
