Taking in all there is to know about landfill waste can be a headache. There are so many factors, facts and frustrating truths about it. It’s easy to say the problem is just too big to solve. But that’s all the more reason why it’s important. And thanks to companies like Gomi, there are many small efforts being made for change. This one, in particular, is impressive because it creates an object you use every day.
The Gomi speaker is a portable box made from plastic shopping bags. You know, the item that is so harmful to the environment it’s banned in some countries? Yeah. Those bags. For every Gomi speaker made, 100 plastic bags are used, instead of going to a landfill. We think that’s pretty great. And what you’ll really like (aside from helping the planet) is the sound. These speakers are powerful and portable, with an 18hr playtime from one charge.
