If you run a busy home or are constantly on the go, it’s nice to have a reliable way to stow and organize your stuff. It’s even better if it supports a sustainable lifestyle. Welli Bins are just the product.

Break up with plastic storage containers

You want to lead a more sustainable life, starting with the products you buy. But, if you’ve looked on the market for home organization accessories lately, you’ve probably noticed that the pickings are slim.

They’re made from either pollutant-filled plastics, flimsy fabrics, or difficult-to-clean straw. There’s got to be a better solution. And that’s what Welli Bins founder and mother of three, Kathleen McIntyre, thought.

Together with her brother-in-law, Andrew McIntyre, a product engineer, they created a line of storage bins made from bio-based foam.

The foam is made mostly from sugarcane, tree bark, and other renewable materials instead of fossil-fuel-based plastic. This base material is also carbon-negative since the sugarcane plants help consume CO2.

Then, the company uses leftover biomass from the production process to fuel the generators that power the manufacturing facility. According to the company, the little waste material that’s left gets recycled in the typical way.

Wash these sustainable storage bins as often as you please

Cleaning is another area where the typical shoe bin fails. Because while those straw and felt wool materials are beautiful, they’re pretty much impossible to clean thoroughly. So they stay dirty.

But Welli Bins are easy to clean. They resist water, so you can soap them up and rinse them as much as you like. You can even disinfect them with household chemicals and UV rays.

Meanwhile, families and busy professionals need home accessories that can keep up with them. Since Welli Bins won’t tear or break—even if the kids are fighting over them—they’re a storage system you can rely on.

That’s because the Welli Bins unique material is strengthened with cellulose strands, which makes it resistant to tears. So, yes, they can stand up to soccer practice and being loaded to the brim with groceries.
