Obeo is an Irish company based in Dublin founded by Kate Cronin, an industrial designer, and Liz Fingleton, an accountant

The idea for Obeo originated from Kate’s research into design sustainability that focused on the negative effects of food waste in landfill.

The solution was Obeo, a compostable food waste box that allows for the quick, clean collection of food waste. Obeo sits conveniently on the counter top where it gets filled with food waste. When full, Obeo along with its contents goes directly into the outdoor organic bin and a new unit is opened. The result is no mess to clean in the kitchen and a fresher organic bin.
