Presentation of products on the website

We do our best to present the products that we offer in our online store as accurately and truthfully as possible, from many angles and with a lot of detail. Nevertheless, the colour of the actual product may deviate slightly from the colour on the photo.
As each product is unique, handmade from waste materials, slight deviations are possible with regard to colour, shape, size and material.


No registration is necessary for purchase. With registered users’ purchases, all entered data will be protected and used only for the purpose of processing your orders.


After submitting your order, you will receive an email with a confirmation. If you wish to cancel the order, please send a message to that effect to our email address within six (6) hours.
If the buyer does not cancel their order in the time stated above, the purchase contract between the buyer and the seller (Kulturno ekološko društvo Smetumet so.p.) is considered final.
Products ordered and paid for by credit card, PayPal or with cash on delivery shall be sent within two business days of receiving your order.

Email order

There is also the option of ordering by email, for all those unfamiliar with online stores or having trouble with your order.
If you want to order by email, please tell us which product you are interested in.
The whole process of selecting your product and processing your order will be carried out by email.


As soon as you submit your order, we will send you an email containing a confirmation and amount of your order. After you have paid the stated amount, we will send you an invoice, and a copy of the invoice will also be attached to the products you ordered.
An exception to the latter is made when sending products as a gift to another address – in such cases, no invoice will be attached to the package.


We offer four payment methods to our online customers:
· Credit card payment: In this case, the amount of your purchase is taken from your bank account.
· PayPal payment: In this case, you will need an online-enabled card and have to be logged in as a PayPal user. The price of your order can thus be paid through the PayPal system, which works on the same principle as credit card payment, the only difference being that PayPal allows for around-the-clock processing of payments and that we get no information from your credit card when the payment is carried out.
· By pro forma invoice: If the customer chooses the pro forma invoice payment option, submission of their order is followed by them receiving an email containing a summary of their order and details needed to process the payment (company data and bank account number). The customer then uses the UPN form to execute the payment (through an e-banking service or at a bank or post office), and we send the package as soon as we see the payment arrive to out account.
· Upon delivery: We send the package by registered mail with a redemption value, meaning that you pay for your purchases as you receive the package. This option is only available for customers in Slovenia.
