All of us are very aware that we must look after our planet, put less pressure on our environment and use energy and raw materials responsibly. This is why our webshop stocks numerous products that comply with various environmental hallmarks and sustainability certifications. It’s how we help our clients fulfil their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), use less plastic and reduce their CO₂ footprint: The sustainability logos and hallmarks next to the product description make it clear that a product is responsible.
The sustainability hallmarks in our webshop
In our webshop you will see the FSC logo
next to products made of wood, paper and cardboard sourced from responsibly-managed forests. Products that are EN13432 certificated because they are compostable in industrial facilities are shown by the seedling logo
. The Vinçotte logo 'OK Compost HOME'
indicates that a product can be composed at home. We use the Green Key
logo to indicate products that comply with Green Key’s sustainability and environmental-care demands. The SUP-proof environmental hallmark indicates a product is an alternative to plastic (also read our information page about the ‘plastic challenge’
). And, finally, various products that have a measurably lower environmental impact have an Eco Rating
. This unique star system developed by The LCA Centre
and the Stichting Natuur & Milieu (Nature & Environment Foundation) scores products on the basis of 19 environmental-impact factors throughout their entire lifecycle from sourcing to disposal.
