Mutu is a digital rental marketplace for items that only get used a few times a year and would otherwise collect dust or be thrown into landfill. In New Zealand 15.5 million tonnes of waste is discarded every year. Only 28% of that waste is currently recycled.
Mutu allows Kiwis to quickly search, compare and locate items to rent based on budget and location. The goal is to disrupt consumer culture in New Zealand by providing Kiwis with a technology solution that allows them to get access to anything they need without taking on ownership.
Currently in pre-launch stage, the objectives are to secure strategic partnerships with organisations that can help Mutu to quickly increase its reach. To date, those partnerships include ecostore, Girl Guiding NZ, YMCA, Circularity and Envirohub.
