Confused about Sustainability? Here’s How to Rethink Your Portfolio
Leisure & Smart
Are you confused about the switch to more eco-friendly products? Since there are many ways to make an impact, we’re breaking them down into several stories.
This time, we’re focusing on the three dimensions to rethink when it comes to assessing the environmental impacts of products:
1. THE MATERIAL IN FOCUS
What’s the product made of? Is the material renewable or has it even been recycled before?
SPIRIANT already has fast-growing materials like bamboo, palm leaves or sugarcane, available.
2. THE PRODUCTION PROCESS
Sustainability isn’t just about where a material comes from. What happens to the product during production plays a huge role, too: Are harmful chemicals used during the process? Is lots of water needed for production?
Grass paper is an eco-friendly alternative with huge benefits to the environment. Made from grass fiber pulp, it uses less than one liter of water per ton, saving 80% of energy compared to virgin paper fiber and requires zero use of chemicals.
3. THE REPROCESSING OPTIONS
Of course, sustainability doesn’t end with bringing products on board. What happens to them after their use is equally important for their environmental impact.
Ideally, they are recyclable or compostable, which is true for materials made from corn starch, biodegradable plastics, or paper.
Ultimately, which materials you opt for depends on the product group and the recycling options you have access to. Speak to SPIRIANT for expert knowledge to determine the best alternative for you.
