PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The sustainability of the entire product lifecycle guided us in the choice of material and production process. The one-piece design reduces the number of the components of the product, made with a single molding operation, using a bacterial bioplastic material: compostable, recyclable and that allows to drastically reduce the carbon footprint of the material production. Also the staining method preserves the eco-sustainability of the product: the dyes are added in very low percentages during the molding process, avoiding any surface coating.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Dimensions: 118 mm x 15,2 mm x 88 mm.
The packaging is also thought to be consistent with the objective of sustainability: it is composed of a single sheet of recyclable cardboard to minimize also in this case the environmental impact.
