Our products made from recycled materials
"By 2025, 50% of our product lines will be made from recycled raw materials and we will reduce our packaging by 50%."
As we care deeply about our social and environmental impact, we work every day to develop healthy, safe, recyclable, and recycled products. The proportion of recycled material in our products is verified by an external body in accordance with the specifications of International ISO standard 14021. We are FSC-certified.
This guarantees that packaging bearing the label is derived from sustainably managed forests.
Consumers are encouraged to return their old cookware to the store to receive a discount on a new product from the recycled line. Used utensils will also be collected and recycled.
A partnership with a retailer and Reforest'Action, a renowned association which, for the past 10 years, has advocated for the protection of forests and financed the planting of more than 10 million trees worldwide with the help of numerous partners in the field. By purchasing a product from the recycled line, you’ll allow for the replanting of a tree and thus help preserve biodiversity in France.
