HOMIE is an innovative start-up that operates at the forefront of the circular economy by proposing, developing and testing new circular business models with consumers that reduce our need for ‘stuff’ and helps us reduce our environmental impact in the home significantly. HOMIE wants to significantly reduce the environmental impact of domestic appliances, by moving from “ownership” to “Pay-Per-Use”.
Starting with washing machines, HOMIE will offer free installation and maintenance of a high-quality washing machine, with the cost of water and electricity included in a small fee charged at every washing cycle, thus offering an innovative Pay-Per-Use service model. Washing machines are only the start, and HOMIE aims to roll out its vision of “less stuff, more happiness” to all appliances in the home through an innovative platform approach.
