Promoting a zero-waste future for households
2021 SEED Starter Team Waste Management Thane, India

Ekobarn recently launched its first home composting kits, designed to keep in mind the cornerstones of a good user experience: Ease of use, durability and ability to suit urban spaces. They are also currently developing a bulk composting system to enable households to become zero-waste step by step while creating a more beautiful and livable urban space.

Every household produces organic waste on a daily basis. Ekobarn offers an easy and smart solution for individual households to eliminate leachate and odours, while producing rich compost soil. The product is tailor made for urban households in Indian cities, needs little human intervention by providing necessary aeration and thus makes wet-waste management at the source easier. Ekobarn is currently developing a bulk composting system around the same tenets. Customers are also offered a buyback channel to sell their excess compost back to Ekobarn, who distributes it to households not composting yet.
