Shared Terracotta Designs with 12 entrepreneurs and over 20 individuals all over the world till date
Some products and communication material are available as free downloads on our site.
We acknowledge that getting everyone to make a difference cannot be fulfilled by one company or only one type of solution. That is why we made our signature terracotta range Open Source with a Creative Commons Licence of Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike.
Our design intention was to be easy to replicate and create a culture of Copy4Good. Our site is designed to make all information easy and fun to understand with a host of free presentations, posters and films.
Our idea was to catalyse the space for a new practice to emerge and set the conditions for a new market.

Thank you very much for your reply!
I will try to find a potter here and to reply your product. If I will succeed,I will send you my news!
Do you have any detailed drawings, with dimensions of pots and holes? Another question: pots are untreated like a pot for a plant with loam or the interior has a waterproof covering (as a jug)? Excuse me for my questions, but I would be able to do something for contrasting pollution and waste, and I want me to do it well! Thank you again!
We have seen your products in a magazine and found it very interesting.
We live in Israel and would like to inquire whether we can purchase it here.
Hi Daily Dump,
Thanks for sharing the drawing of the leaf composter on your website.
I wish to get one fabricated for my garden. I would like to know what is the size mesh used.
I am a garden writer and blogger from the U.S. I saw your products mentioned on Treehugger, and I was wondering if your composters were available in the United States, and, if not, if there are any plans to make them available.
I would also be interested in learning the prices of the various models, if that is possible. I want to do a blog entry on your composters, and possibly pitch a longer story to a few of the gardening magazines I am interested in writing for. I think your composters are an ingenious, beautiful idea, and I hope you can tell me more about them. Thank you very much,
Here are the drawings if you need to get someone to build these there. All the best
Thank you, Poonam! That is something I definitely want to look into doing. I will keep you updated of any developments.
Thank you again! Take care,
