We handpick all our materials
We design to maximize the reuse of materials. And all our products are fossil free. How do we do that? If we need to add new materials, we go bio-based. And we reuse all materials from our products. Some products need glass or metal. Therefore, our designs can always be taken apart easily into mono-materials.
We do everything we can to get our products back after you are done using them. We’ll check if the products can be repaired or reused.
If that is not possible we use the latest advances in science to recycle the products at a molecular level so the materials can enter into a new lifecycle. Again and again.
When we need to add new materials, we don’t use fossil resources but bio-based materials, taken from biomass, grown in one season.
One of such materials is Polylactic Acid (PLA), obtained from agricultural crops such as corn and sugar cane. PLA lends itself very well for full molecular recycling back into its building blocks. We continue to scout for exciting new bio-based materials that we can use in a closed loop.
Glass comes in many forms and shapes, it’s aesthetically pleasing to look at and it’s one of the most recycled products in the world.
Glass doesn’t degrade during the recycling process. Hence, it can be recycled repeatedly without compromising on quality or purity. Jackpot!
Sometimes we have to use metals like stainless steel and copper. Recycling copper and stainless steel requires less energy than making new, that’s why we love to use it.
