How did it all start?
Hey! We are EKOMODO, a Basque brand born out of... garbage.
Back in 2017, in a small town in the North of Spain, our founders met at a PET plastic recycling factory (used for traditional bottles), a benchmark in the circular economy at a European level... and together, they decided to launch a project with a very clear mission:
To make recycled and sustainable products something cool, useful and quality, that people want to carry and use in their daily lives.
In short: to ensure that sustainability stops being an exception and becomes the norm.
Processes and materials
Our products are made under 3 basic principles:
We manufacture locally, with local raw materials and with close suppliers.
We work under the principles of ecodesign and circular economy, minimizing waste and using 100% recycled and recyclable materials.
We involve people from groups at risk of exclusion in the making, through collaboration with social workshops.
