Hemp is one of the oldest and most eco-friendly textile fabrics. It is made from fibres of the fast growing cannabis plant that is naturally pest resistant and that can grow without the assistance of fertilizers and pesticides. This makes it a 100% organic crop and therefore very environmentally friendly. The production process of the hemp fibres is a very sustainable one and also due to the fact that these organic fibres are 100% recyclable.
Organic cotton is equal to cotton with the difference that it is naturally grown without use of any pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers or any other chemical. In order to know for sure that the cotton is indeed organic, manufacturers go through extensive supply chain verification by third-parties and only certified cotton can be marketed (example by GOTS). Number of organic cotton farms is increasing fastly however still counts for a very small part of overall cotton production worldwide.
Recycled fabrics are made from waste fabrics (any textiles). Collected textile solid wastes are reprocessed to fibre and then back to fabrics for further re-production of bags, garments or linen. Most of the manufacturers work with two streams : pre-consumer waste (scrap from production) and post-consumer waste (used textiles collected). The color segregation occurs during the process to avoid as much as possible the re-dyeing of the fabric.
ABS plastic (Acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) is 100% recyclable. ABS is assigned the number 7 recycling code. It is clubbed with “Other Plastics” on number 7 group. The process of recycling is simple and similar to the recycling method of PET.
Once the recycled ABS has been fully reformed, it is ready to be re-used. ABS can be recycled for 2 or more times.
PET is the most common type of plastic, mostly used for packaging and beverages disposable bottles/containers. A large part of the solid waste in the world is attributed to this packaging. Recycled PET is known as RPET, and it is the most widely recycled plastic in the world. The use of recycled PET by giving a new life to an already made product in place of virgin resin results in reduced environmental impact.
We have introduced a new range of paper products. The same items you already know and love, made with sustainability in mind. This is only one of many ways we are adapting to help the ecosystem. Did you know the average tree can be used to produce over 8,000 pieces of paper?
Once the paper is sorted, it is processed into usable raw materials which we mold into convenient items.
Cork is the bark of the self-regenerating cork oak tree. It is ranked among the most durable organic materials with the property of stabilizing the air temperature and humidity. It is a very flexible material and be treated in a simple natural way. It has good adhesive properties, making it easy to use in combination with different materials. In general the cork industry is regarded as one of the most environmental friendly. Cork is 100% natural and biodegradable.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants (grass) and it can replenish itself within a year with minimum water needs and without the need of fertilizers to boost its growth. Since bamboo is naturally pest-resistant there is no usage of pesticides. Bamboo is a very renewable resource, strong and durable. It absorbs CO2 from the air and releases oxygen which improves the air quality. Bamboo is 100% natural and biodegradable.
Polylactic acid (PLA) is a natural plastic substitute made from fermented plant starch (usually corn). It is an ecofriendly, renewably-sourced and biodegradable alternative to conventional petroleum-based plastics. The increased usage of PLA will reduce the carbon footprint of many industries. This non-toxic green material can be used for all kinds of products such as grocery shopping bags to safe reusable tumblers
Glass is a sustainable and budget friendly material. With different styles and sizes for any occasion, you can use these for when you are thirsty to help avoid single use items. Do your part by making this small change.
Glass is a great material that can be re-used which makes it a perfect match for our collection. easy to clean and long lasting.
Slate is a mineral product / 100% natural. Its production process is very simple and has a low environmental impact (minimum manufacturing as it is handcrafted from the quarry). Natural slate can be easily recycled at the end of its life.
Choose more sustainable materials and replace disposable with reusable products.
In the way we interact with our environment, unnecessary waste is no longer an option. Replacing disposable products made of non-renewable resources by reusable products or biodegradable materials is an important step forward.
