We are becoming more and more environmentally conscious and therefore we are actively looking for ways and products with which we can contribute to a better environment. People often choose a sustainable alternative material for plastic for example or they like to contribute by reducing or seperating waste. Reusable products also grow in popularity. Complete your range with eco-friendly and sustainable products with this 4 solutions.
1. Less waste by preserving more
Wasting less food or throwing away waste, can easily be done by storing food in the right way. By using storage tins, sealing jars or ventilating baskets, the food lasts longer. The cans have a long lifespan and are available in many shapes and sizes. To store fresh food and leftovers beeswax wraps are very handy. they are self-adhesive and fold easily around a bowl, dish or plate. They are reusable and therefore offer a good alternative to household foil or other plastic.
2. Choose recycled material
More re-usage can lead to less energy waste, because the recycling process costs less energy than making entirely new products. This contributes to a reduction of the total energy consumption which results in less pollution. Recycled products do not have to be boring. Our fire bowls, made from old barrels, car wrecks & railcars, have a surprisingly beautiful and unique design. Want to know more about the story behind our recycled fire bowls?

3. Using durable and reusable items
Re-usage is the magic word, but that doesn't really work with disposable plastic. In some countries, such as the Netherlands, giving away plastic bags for free is banned. People therefore often look for bags that last a long time and can be used several times. That's why foldable bags and cotton bags are popular, but they have to look nice ofcourse! Provide (foldable) bags with attractive prints or bags made of natural fabrics.
In the kitchen and garden we use an increasing number of products made from natural materials such as wood, brass and/or coconut fibres. These brushes are plastic-free, but just as firm and relatively water-resistant.
4. Encourage waste reduction and disposal
Every year in March it is Global Recycling Day and in September people fanatically participate in World Cleanup Day. These days draw worldwide attention to the environment and the litter problem. Of course, we hope that it will become a social norm to leave less waste lying around. Motivate this and give your customer a helping hand! With a cleanup tool, litter is easily picked up without straining the back. The following new items have recently been added to our catalog. You can now easily request a digital version of our catalog, with this you can already make your first contribution to a better environment.
