The two brains behind the innovative product.
According to their official website, the two came up with the groundbreaking idea “after working in the furniture automotive and fashion industries” where the realized the gravity of our pollution problems.
Their interest in the subject led them to resigning from their day jobs to think of a solution and to establish their own company.
