OUR MISSION

Here at Storx we strongly believe in doing our part to protect the future of this planet. We aim to do this by utilising hemp stalk along with other innovative, sustainable materials to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels. We set out to make the worlds most sustainable and ergonomic home compostable products. By stripping back all unnecessary components and focusing on a perfect mix of design and materials, we can recreate everyday items to better serve our environment, whilst still upholding strong aesthetics and durability.

From plant to pen and back again

 

We figured out a way to jump in on the journey of a plant’s natural lifecycle from seed back to soil. Before the plant decides to reside back into the ground, we give it a second wind and use the stalks to create our pens. Once you're done with the pen, the material is able to finish its natural lifecycle by composting back into the ground ready for a new growing season. Like plants, we don’t need flash equipment to break it down. Home compost will do, and we’re currently proving it.

"Our solution

Sustainable

Paddock to pen

and back again

Here at Storx, we take sustainability and the environment seriously. We are determined to do our part in securing the beauty of this planet not only for ourselves but for many future generations to come. This is why we use strictly plant based materials to recreate everyday products that can be reused again and again whilst still having an end life which gives back to the environment. Heres how...

OUR STORY

As a bunch of kids living on the East Coast of New Zealand, spanning Hawkes Bay right up to Tolaga Bay, we were brought up both surrounded and immersed by agriculture and horticulture. All on different career paths, eventually were brought back to our roots here in Hawkes Bay. An idea was sparked after our first attempt at growing hemp for the fast growing seed and oils industry. The birds and the bees had other ideas. We were left with a paddock of "stalks". Determined to persevere we began researching a number of different avenues and uses for hemp. They say "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade". Using the classic "number 8 wire" kiwi ingenuity we utilised what we had left from the crop and turned these stalks into something remarkable.

 

From here, Storx was born.

Meet The Team

Jack New Profile_edited.jpg

Born and bred in Hawkes Bay, it was easy for Jack to be surrounded by a rural setting. After being shipped over to boarding school in Sydney Australia to complete his high school years, Jack then headed further abroad to travel parts of South Africa for several months, before returning to New Zealand. Jack’s professional background is in sales, starting out as the youngest commercial real estate broker in the country. After an introduction from a friend to Hemp in 2018, Jack became inherently curious about hemp’s capabilities and how it could be used to replace everyday items, which were so often used and disregarded in the corporate sector. Plenty of research, trial & error, and nature’s way since then, the Storx journey began.

Kate new Profile_edited.jpg

Kate comes from a background of mixed cropping, sheep, and beef farming on the East Coast of the North Island, outside the small township of Tolaga Bay. Following boarding school far from home, Kate set off to study a BSc at the University of Canterbury, with a focus on Environmental Science having a passion for both agriculture and sustainability. Following university and some intermittent travel, Kate’s career has ranged from local government through to the private industry and consulting, and more recently moving into a regional economic development role in Hawkes Bay. Kate’s involvement with hemp stemmed from Jack’s keen interest and continuous lectures about the untapped opportunities that this miracle plant provides.
