At Eco-wick we are designing and building with our own hands sturdy long-lasting products using mostly up-cycled materials based on permaculture principles and aiming at the establishment of a circular cooperative economy. With climate emergency, resource depletion, increasing inequality and devastating pandemics there is an urgent need to transform how we interact with the planet. It is unavoidable, we’re at a historical cross-roads and we have to rethink the way we design, produce, and consume.
Thank you for supporting local manufacturing, up-cycling and a cooperative business model that hopes to build the new world in the shell of the old.
At Eco-wick, our design imperative is the up-cycling of resources and materials that are discarded by other industries. The majority of our current designs use up to 90% up-cycled materials. We keep working on increasing the degree of efficiency of our products so our relative impact is minimized.
We believe that a complete rethink of the current design and manufacturing system is not enough. This has led us to develop our own cooperative horizontal model of production and organization.
