Sortaider – environmentally-friendly recycling solutions

Sortaider is an Estonian company designing and producing functional and practical waste sorting solutions.

Motivated to protect the environment, and offering the similar opportunity to others, we have developed recycling solutions that are environmentally-friendly and pleasing to the eye.

Our Nordic-style products are perfect for any interior and, due to their functionality, they also serve as design elements.

Our Sortaider Container received the Red Dot award in 2021, which acknowledged our efforts concerning both our product and the company as a whole.

Design

Sustainability and an environmentally-friendly lifestyle are trends that our designer Johannes Maltis is passionate about. Creating nature-friendly and functional recycling solutions is one of his ways to contribute to this.

Sortaider products have been designed in collaboration with our customers, and have undergone all the necessary improvements, but one of our original ideas – a screw-free solution – will always be Sortaider’s key feature.

Sortaider’s recycling solutions – an environmentally-friendly way to collect waste by type at source
Sortaider recycling stations have been developed with a focus on quality, simplicity and distinctive design. Our aim is to make sorting by waste type convenient and effective in any environment (e.g. kindergartens/schools, offices, public indoor spaces, etc.)

Sortaider products are made from FSC-certified Baltic birch plywood, which is produced using green energy. The moisture-resistant plywood is covered with Renners Pure Bio coatings that are made of raw materials from renewable sources, and it emits no volatile organic compounds (VOC).

The Sortaider production is waste-free – all the materials are consumed, and from the scrap that is unsuitable for our use, pellets are made. Our products contain plastic-free packaging, they are packed in boxes made from recycled cardboard.

The production chain as a whole is elaborate and sustainable. Let’s care for nature together!

Why is a wooden recycling bin better?
Sortaider products are made of FSC-certified water-resistant Baltic birch plywood, which is, due to its strength and durability, one of the most valued materials in the world. Since wood is a renewable resource, it has a lower carbon footprint than plastic. A wooden recycling bin is a more sustainable choice because wood can be recycled, and it’s biodegradable. Unlike metal and plastic, plywood does not emit CO2, but instead it stores carbon.

Waste sorting is one of the easiest ways to reduce our ecological footprint on a daily basis.

According to a Stanford’s research, 77% of people want to become more environmentally-friendly.

Garbage sorting is one of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce our ecological footprint on a daily basis. By using Sortaider’s recycling solutions, we contribute to the reduction of waste deposited in landfills.

There are many different types of recycling bins available on the market, so it’s important to choose the best ones that suit our needs. If you are looking for a trash bin or recycling solution for your office or home, and at the same time want to keep the interior design of your premises stylish and modern, our Sortaider solution is a perfect choice.
