Ecopod Workshop

Ecopod workshopEcopods are made by hand at our Ecopod workshop in Brighton by father and son team – Peter and Gar Rock.  Peter is also a co-owner of ARKA Ecopod Ltd with Hazel Ellison.

We obtain our supply of post consumer newspapers from Magpie – Brighton’s original curbside collection and recycling co-operative and we convert these into paper clay with the help of a pre-war dough machine.

The clay is laid by hand into fibreglass moulds and dried in a specially designed heating chamber for 6 days, before starting the second stage of production, which involves steaming and sanding each lid and base into its final shape and fit.

Each Ecopod is finished to order, which is why it takes us two working days to send out a coloured Ecopod and five working days for the gold Ecopod.

We also hand finish the Acorn Urns at the workshop and hand prepare the recycled paper twists for the lids, box and despatch.
