Kleen Hub ApS is a Copenhagen-based impact company that has established the first and leading reusable packaging-as-a-service business model in the Nordics.
Kleen hub has the mission to empower and inspire businesses, people and institutions to phase out single-use packaging. The company was founded by Robert Dichtl, Giuseppe Lanzafame and Simone Favorito in 2020. Back in the summer of 2019, we had a Thai takeaway dinner in Copenhagen and were astonished by the amount of plastic packaging needed for a 3-people dinner. After market research and several days of brainstorming, we decided to make the fight against single-use packaging our lifelong mission. Today, 150+ business partners have joined the kleen hub system, 11.000+ people in Denmark, Portugal and Spain have chosen our reusables for their drinks/food, and 50.000+ single-use items have been saved from the bin. Overall, more than 3.000 KG CO2e have been saved.
As pioneers in the field, we were the first startup in the Nordics to develop a digital system for this purpose. In 2020, we became the first such company to launch in Denmark, specifically in Copenhagen.
We have forged enduring partnerships with leading players in Denmark, spanning from coffee chains, and restaurants, to major Danish universities, including top corporate canteens and their providers. In the summer of 2021, we extended our reach to Aarhus, collaborating with nine cafes and even placing our reusable bowls in the Aarhus Municipality building in Brabrand. Furthermore, we are collaborating with other top-tier companies in Denmark to expand our reach even further.
