Ecopods were made by hand at our Ecopod workshop in Brighton by father and son team – Peter and Gar Rock. Peter is co-owner of ARKA Ecopod Ltd with Hazel Ellison.
We obtained our supply of post consumer newspapers from Magpie – Brighton’s original curbside collection and recycling co-operative and we converted these into paper clay, with the use of a pre-war dough machine.
The clay was laid by hand into fibreglass moulds and dried in a specially designed heating chamber for 6 days, before starting the second stage of production. That involved steaming and sanding each lid and base into its final shape and fit.
