These Eco-Conscious Bluetooth Speakers are Made From Recycled Plastic and E-Bike Batteries – FOTOLITERA.com
The power of fresh design is the ability to adapt, innovate and reconstruct the old into the new. Gomi, a design studio based in Brighton, is doing just that with “Collection One,” a line of stunning Bluetooth speakers made from recycled materials.
Gomi has situated themselves at the intersection of high-quality audio engineering and eco-friendly sustainability. Using a combination of plastic waste and e-bike batteries sourced from local recycling companies, the company’s limited edition collection breathes new life into the materials with its unique designs.
Each speaker is created using approximately 45 plastic bags and lithium batteries from damaged electric bicycles. These flexible plastic materials, which would otherwise end up in incinerators or landfills, are the perfect product to harness for a different purpose: playing music.

Not only do the beautiful speakers offer premium sound quality, but they also double as a one-of-a-kind statement piece for artists, audiophiles and Earth lovers alike. Each unit is handmade in Brighton with a sleek, marbled aesthetic.
And the best part? They’re completely sustainable, innovative and eco-conscious.
“First, we source retired battery packs from e-bike manufacturers and harvest the lithium cells,” explains Gomi’s website about their unique process. “The battery cells within these are healthy, but the cost of repairing the damaged packs makes it cheaper for these companies to buy new ones. We test the cells in our studio on our diagnostic rack to check that they’re in perfect working order. Finally, we combine the cells to create the battery packs which power our Gomi speakers for an impressive 30+ hours of play-time at normal listening volumes.”
The speakers are available for £299. You can find out more via Gomi’s website.
