Good for the planet – and your wallet

Breathing new life into old materials

Breathing new life into old materials

Our ambition is to develop and design products made exclusively from recycled and renewable materials by 2030. To this end, we are altering our design and production processes to use more recycled materials and less new materials. Soon you will see a growing number of products made from fully recycled plastic, wood, fabric and metal.

Working together to safeguard forests

We love wood because it is durable, renewable, recyclable and - of course - beautiful! But we must learn to use it responsibly. Our goal, by 2020, is to use wood originating exclusively from more sustainable sources, that is, wood that is either recycled or FSC-certified.

Save water every time you turn on the tap

On the way towards better plastics

Plastic is resistant, durable, lightweight and versatile, which is why it is used in so many products. However, the time has come to find new ways of producing plastic and disposing of it in a sustainable way. Our goal, by 2030, is to sell products made exclusively from renewable or recycled plastic materials.

Cotton grown with care

When it comes to home products, we believe that you shouldn't have to compromise on price, quality, design, function and sustainability. That’s why all the cotton in our products - towels, sheets and more besides - is made from sustainable sources. Together with our partners, we are working to make the world’s cotton production more sustainable.
