DE RIGO’S PATHWAY TO ECO-SUSTAINABILITY STARTS FROM ITS PACKAGING

DE RIGO’S PATHWAY TO ECO-SUSTAINABILITY STARTS FROM ITS PACKAGING

Since 1 February, most of the materials used by De Rigo for its packaging are recyclable, compostable or in any case re-usable. All the materials - used to provide customers with eyewear, POP material and spare parts - are produced by suppliers certified by FSC – ForestsTM for All Forever, an internationally recognised forest certification system that guarantees respect for the environment, by choosing raw materials from forests managed in line with the principles of sustainability. In particular, the company has introduced the following material, provided to customers along with a guide to correct waste disposal, so that everyone can contribute to improving the recycling process.

  • New large cartons designed using natural fibres and with internal separators that reduce the volume of the packaging and therefore the waste to be disposed of. At the same time, smaller volumes optimise shipments, and so reduce the fuel required to send the products.
  • Bubble wrap in bio-compostable material for filling space in medium and large cartons, in place of plastic bubble wrap.
  • Padding material in recycled paper for cushioning large cartons, filling the empty spaces, protecting the products from knocks, and holding the goods still to prevent damage during carriage.
  • Padded envelopes in recycled paper with corrugated inner lining in place of those with plastic padding used until now for the shipment of spare parts. The unique nature of the lining makes the envelope shock-resistant and particularly sturdy, as well as transforming it into a fully recyclable product.

This is just the first step in the company’s new eco-friendly ethos aimed at ensuring the exclusive use of sustainable materials for all its packaging. Because proper waste management and recovery helps to protect the environment, not just for us but also for our children.
