With recycling now so important, especially food waste, this neat bin from Mepal is the perfect solution for any kitchen. Small enough to fit on any work space the Calypso is designed with a narrow base and a wide opening for easy filling and cleaning.
It is designed not to actually need a waste bag as the inside is highly polished and smooth making it really easy to rinse out under the tap. That said you can, if you prefer, use a bag though, please, do make such it is an eco-friendly one!
The lid is removeable but also has a simple hinge ensuring it stays open when filling it with food waste as you are working away, chopping, preparing and cooking your latest recipe! Durable, neatly styled, practical and functional in lifestyle colours, whats not to like!

For all of us sustainable means many things but we feel an important factor is the life of a product. As our Grandparents taught us if we take care of things then they should last! All our products are selected with that in mind; they are built to last. They may cost a little more but once bought then they should last for many years, if not a lifetime! A benefit to your pocket, but also the planet.
If you find anything you disagree with or want to know more about then, please, just ask, this is an ongoing work in progress! Call us on 01993 867075 or email [email protected] We care!
