ecoecho®

Setting a high standard

To be certified as ecoecho® a Duni product should live up to at least two of our four environmental criteria. These must apply to significant part of the product. Living up to one of criteria may be enough if – compared tothe standard alternative(s) – the relevant material clearly drives change towards more sustainable practices.

For more detailed information, please see below.

RESOURCE EFFICIENCY

Product is made using raw materials that show clear resource efficiency compared to standard alternatives. For instance, recycled materials, low processed filler materials like Chalk, and by-products that otherwise would have been considered waste.

RENEWABILITY

Product is made using renewable raw materials from the biosphere: wood or plant material. Renewable materials are part of the biomass CO2 cycle and do not contribute to global warming, as opposed to carbon based materials such as mineral oil.

compostability

Product is made using materials that biodegrade in industrial composting facilities under the standard EN 13432. To take full advantage of this, the product should be sorted with other bio-waste (food) for industrial composting whenever possible. Local waste regulations need to be followed or agreements made with local waste handlers.

RESPONSIBLE SOURCING

Product is made using raw-materials that are part of a certification scheme, which assures responsible social and environmental practice in forestry or plantation.

A ecoecho® solution for all your needs

Ecoecho® Materials

BAGASSE

Compostable bagasse is a great example of upcycling. It is made with surplus natural material from sugar production: sugar cane stems.

  • Readily biodegrades under controlled composting conditions
  • Once composted it turns to soil in just a few weeks
  • Suitable for industrial composting
  • May be sorted with food waste depending on local regulations
  • Available certification: EN13432

RPET

rPET is made from recycled plastic bottles – which otherwise would end up in landfill sites or burnt as fuel.

  • Typically, rPet has as a 50% lower carbon footprint than virgin plastic
  • ecoecho® rPET products contain up to 80% recycled PET
  • Food safety rules mean that the other 20% must be virgin plastic
  • The rPET we use is regularly tested to ensure it meets food safety rules 
    – and for content of metals and hazardous materials
  • Supply chain is fully documented
  • Recyclable as a standard plastic

PLA

Compostable PLA is made from otherwise surplus renewable material: fermentable corn starch. Bioplastics like PLA offer society a way to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

  • Recyclable in modern recycling plants
  • Available certification: EN13432

CARDBOARD

To qualify as ecoecho®, cardboard products must be either FSC-certified or have a compostable lining. Some meet both these criteria.

  • Recyclable as cardboard
  • Available certification for PLA or PBS-lined products: EN13432

STEARIN

Our Simply Stearin candles are made from renewable, fully traceable material. They carry the Swan Nordic Ecolabel.

  • Minimise soot emissions
  • High quality, impurity free wicks
  • Safe and reliable
  • Tested internally and externally (DEKRA)

BIOPLASTIC

ecoecho® bioplastic is made from sugar cane: 94% of the organic carbon in the material is from plant-based resources. It is created using a highly efficient manufacturing process, which is integrated with the production of sugar.

  • LCA (life cycle assessment) shows ecoecho bioplastic has a 25% lower carbon footprint than standard plastics
  • Recyclable as a standard plastic

“I’m very happy to be working with Duni and supporting the ecoecho® range. It fits with my philosophy: I always use sustainable, seasonal and, whenever possible local ingredients.”

SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN

We work very closely with our suppliers to ensure they meet the highest standards – and, in doing so, keep the promises we make. They are all audited annually to ensure they uphold sustainable values, follow our stringent Supplier Code of Conduct and comply with all the relevant EU regulations.

DUNI CERTIFICATIONS

If you want to uphold sustainable values, you need to be confident that your products come from a partner who shares them. We do:

  • Duni sites are certified to the ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 management systems for environment and quality
  • Duni is also certified to the BRC Global Standard for Hygiene
  • Duni is certified for environmental labels such as FSC®, Nordic Ecolabel and OK Compost. See more on this below.

Environmental labels

At Duni, as part of our Blue Mission, we work hard to minimise the environmental impact of our business. It’s important to us that our products are made and used with respect for nature. Reflecting this, they may carry one or more of these labels:

The Swan Nordic Ecolabel is one of the most well-known Ecolabels in the world. It guarantees products have fulfilled stringent environmental and climate criteria.

The OK compost label confirms products or packaging are in compliance with EN 13432, the European standard for compostability in industrial composting installations.

Duni is an FSC®-certified company, meaning the great majority of our tissue-based products come from wood fibres sourced from responsibly managed FSC®-certified forests.

Our pulp is also bleached in either TCF (Totally chlorine free) or ECF (Elementary Chlorine Free) processes.
