HOW OBEO WORKS

Obeo is not just a normal paper bag.

It’s made from water resistant paper so it can handle wet food waste. The natural paper fibres allow food waste to breathe preventing smells in your kitchen.

The cardboard layer provides strength and structure so it stands up on your counter top for easy access. Obeo will also stay intact in your brown bin until it’s collected so no more cleaning those dreaded bins.

We are certified compostable and biodegradable which is why we carry this lovely seedling logo on our packaging.
