What is Deko Eko?
Deko Eko is online upcycling marketplace connecting businesses, designers, small manufacturers and consumers aiming to create more circular market by bringing back waste materials to the loop. We create & facilitate a professional ‘waste-to-product’ market which focuses on finding the most valuable solutions for hard-to-recycle waste materials by boosting creativity & collaboration among designers, consumers and global companies.
At our B2B2C marketplace the newest upcycling ideas are matched via our ‘smart-matching solutions’ with global corporations that are generating waste and seeking for new, more profitable solutions. Our international chain of upcycling manufacturers gives the highest value jump from zero to a ready-to-sell products which are 100% made from carefully chosen waste materials from global companies. Among them are all sorts of every-day-use products like bags, jewellery, fashion & interior products, corporate gifts, brand loyalty give aways made from outdated marketing materials, old collection of products, packagings of products, textiles, etc.
We are driven to become the 1st global circular marketplace in Europe by developing 2 main lines of growth:
a. smart matching tools linking up directly corporate clients (e.g. McDonald’s, IKEA, Unilever, Heineken) with designers’ upcycling products
b. the e-commerce platform for upcycling designers to sell their products directly to aware consumers
