Kambha (pillar sanskrit) / Composting & Waste Management

The Kambha is India’s first and most beloved home composter. When we started, Daily Dump asked: what do we need to do to make composting a part of everyone’s behaviour? If we can achieve this, considering the waste system in India, what should the product design be? Everyone said it would not stick; no Indian would compost because they viewed it as “dirty”. So we began with a product that was beautiful, simple, and unthreatening. Something that was so ordinary it would fly under the radar. The Kambha is a product that builds the user’s pride, provides better livelihoods to potter communities, and makes waste visible, beautiful, and doable.
