At Uzer, we believe in the power of sustainable innovation. An innovation that helps people and is environmentally friendly.
An innovation that combines convenience and comfort, reduces our impact while improving quality of life.
It is out of this that our desire to become entrepreneurs and create Eugène was born.
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 have a big impact.
In the late 19th century, serving as prefect of the Seine region, Eugène Poubelle decreed that landlords owning buildings had to provide common containers to their residents in order to store household waste.
He even invented waste sorting : a separate container for organic materials, another one for paper and cloth, and a third one for glass, ceramics and oyster shells.
As a nod to History we have named our product after Eugène. Can you recognize Eugène's 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 Eugène in the most eco-friendly and ethical way.
This is why Eugène is made in France (in Nantes) in partnership with the ANRH (organisation for social and vocational integration of people with disabilities).
