Our butterfly logo symbolises a metamorphosis, the very principle of recycling. It also stands for the butterfly effect, or how individual actions can make a difference on a global scale.
Home recycling is part of these small gestures that can have a big impact.
In the late 19th century, serving as a politician in the Seine region, Eugene Poubelle decreed that landlords owning buildings had to provide communal containers for their residents to store household waste in.
Through this he invented waste sorting, as there was one container for organic materials, a separate one for paper and cloth, and a third one for ceramics and oyster shells!
As a nod to history we have named our product after Eugene Poubelle. Can you recognise his new face with his handsome bow tie?
Sustainable consumption means responsible production.
From product design to industry partner selection, we have been dedicated to manufacturing Eugene in the most eco-friendly and ethical way.
This is why Eugene is made in France (in Nantes) in partnership with the ANRH (organisation for social and vocational integration of people with disabilities).
