Duni ecoecho

The challenges the world is currently facing with climate change and air, land and water pollution are not problems of some distant future, but they are here today and must be dealt with now.

Natural resources are being used up more quickly than they can be replaced, so there is simply no more waiting around for answers. Therefore, to meet today’s challenges, we must use the solutions of tomorrow. And that is the essence of the Duni ecoecho™ range.

The Duni ecoecho™ range is about offering products that have been developed with the environment in mind and that have been chosen for having one or more environmentally improved characteristics. These focus on different environmental aspects and parts of the product’s life-cycle. The characteristics that we focus on in the producs are: Resource Efficiency, Renewable, Compostable and Responsible Forestry.

Materials that make a difference

Natural fibrous sugar production residue (from sugarcane stalks). Our bagasse fibre plates are fully compostable. Bagasse is an outstanding example of efficient use of natural resources.

CPLA (Crystallised Polyactid Acid)
CPLA is compostable and made of 100% natural and renewable materials. Unlike many other BIO materials, it is heat resistant up to 80 degrees, making it an excellent material for cutlery.

PBS (Polybutylene succinate)
One of the most advanced biopolymers. It has properties like normal plastic, but it is compostable.

PLA (Polyactic Acid)
Compostable material made from cornstarch and very similar to polystyrene, so it is clear and presents fresh food in its best light.

Set the table with FSC-certified products

Responsible forestry is an important part of Duni’s environmental strategy. In 2009, Duni became an FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Mixed Sources certified company.

The FSC is an independent, non-governmental, not for profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC certified forests are managed in a way that meets the social, economic and ecological needs of present and future generations. The FSC program minimizes the risk of:

• illegally harvested wood
• wood harvested in violation of traditional or civil rights
• wood harvested from forests in which high conservation values are threatened by management activities
• wood harvested from areas being converted from forests and other wooded eco-systems to plantations or non-forest uses
• wood from forests in which genetically modified trees are planted
