Designers Victor Massip and Laurent Lebot of Faltazi have designed a conceptual waste recycling unit called Ekokook. This project aims at processing kitchen and house wastes as close as possible to the place where they are produced that is the kitchen. Here solid waste is selected, processed and stored in containers. A reservoir and two pitchers under the sink are used for collecting water which is then recycled. A container unit in the form of a rotating drum is proposed to collect organic wastes such as fruit and vegetable peelings, leftovers etc. which are broken down by earthworms. The idea of storing garbage so long in the kitchen and keeping live earthworms there seems repelling.
