After chopping fruits and vegetables, what do you do with the waste? For many, the process is a complete mess with various plastic bins and misplaced foods.
Enter Lomi, the world’s first kitchen appliance that will turn food scraps, boxes, cloth and bioplastics into dirt within 24 hours.
Lomi is manufactured by Kelowna’s Pela, best known for its sustainable mobile phone case.
“The arrival of Lomi is the beginning of a new era for Pela, further positioning the brand as a leader within the waste management space,” says Matt Bertulli, CEO and Co-Founder of Pela.
“Similar to having a dishwasher, our goal is for every household to have a Lomi. Its contemporary design and seamless function will make it easier than ever for consumers to shift the way they approach household waste, and composting.”
Bertulli and his team are well on their way to making that happen.
With four days left in its preorder campaign on Indiegogo, Lomi has raised over $7 million from 15,796 backers.
