EKO’s next generation for waste

EKO is bringing a range of innovative bins to the UK market, with 15 different models just launched in John Lewis & Partners (with wider distribution to follow). EKO has specialised in bins since 1997 and introduced its first sensor bin in 2010.

The Deluxe Phantom sensor bin recently won the Gold Design Award at the Canton Fair. “It is ultra long lasting, opening 20,000 times and has a butterfly lid which makes it space efficient – fitting into knocks and crannies and sitting flush against the wall,” explains Brian Walmsely of EKO UK.

With multiple options for recycling across EKO’s range, Brian also highlights the new X-Cube bin: “A super premium pedal bin with an antibacterial coating, our unique bag fixer and colour coded compartments to help with recycling.”

Despite the technical gadgetry available, EKO’s research into the UK market shows that colour is the number one reason for choosing a bin. The Titanium Blue version of the X-Cube is exclusive to John Lewis & Partners.

EKO manufacturers four and a half million bins each year and has a strong presence in the US, Australia and Japan. The company has also expanded into other categories of innovative homewares, and has launched a new UK website at www.ekohome.co.uk

The company also launched a host of new innovations at the recent International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago.
