WHAT CONTRIBUTION DO WE MAKE TO ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION?

Increasing shipping volumes inevitably increase packaging waste, most of which is difficult to recycle. Styrofoam and other synthetic packaging materials, which are often used for insulation and shock absorption, are harmful to the environment - from production to disposal, they leave an extremely poor footprint, as they are mostly petroleum-based and poorly recyclable, if at all. On the other hand, the issues of climate and environmental protection are more present than ever. This increasing environmental awareness influences purchasing decisions. 

But how can we protect our environment when consumption is increasing exponentially at the same time?

We can make an important contribution by using packaging and creating alternatives to Styrofoam that are as functional as they are sustainable. Inspired by nature, our climate-neutral packaging solutions are based on the renewable fibre jute, which has been known for thousands of years for its excellent insulating and shock-absorbing properties. At the same time, jute is entirely compostable and just as powerful as comparable synthetic materials such as Styrofoam. Our ecological filling material for shipping is biodegradable and can be added to residual waste as well as disposed of on the in-house compost. In addition, there are numerous reuse options for the sustainable filling material in the home and garden.

Sustainability is at the core of our business model and we would also like to help you contribute to resource conservation with our sustainable shipping boxes. Kompackt combines the demands of consumer society with the need for environmental protection and ethical awareness of today.

OUR JUTE SOLUTIONS ARE CLIMATE NEUTRAL

Together with ClimatePartner we have recorded the CO2 emissions generated during the production
of our jute products through raw materials, packaging, logistics and disposal: the so-called product carbon footprint.
We offset all unavoidable CO2 emissions of these products by supporting a climate protection project. Therefore, all our packaging solutions made of jute are climate neutral. Climate protection projects save CO2 - for example with reforestation measures or the replacement of climate-damaging technologies with climate-friendly alternatives.
 
We label our jute packaging with the independent "climate neutral" label, enabling our customers to track climate neutrality and learn more about the climate protection project. In this way, we contribute to the greatest possible transparency about the climate neutrality of our products. We are currently involved in the land use project "Rice production with sustainable use of natural resources" in Madhya Pradesh (India).  Rice is a staple food for about half of the world's population. India has the largest rice-growing area in the world and suffers from a water crisis. Rice irrigation consumes about 24-30% of the world's accessible freshwater resources. The project uses the Alternate Wetting and Drying method, where irrigation is controlled and intermittent - so far, about 70,000 farmers are switching to these more sustainable practices, resulting in up to 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions during the growing season. In addition to these environmentally valuable aspects, these techniques increase agricultural productivity and thereby have a positive impact on the living standards of local farmers. In addition to combating poverty through economic development, the promotion of sustainable agriculture is a particularly effective instrument for food security. It creates employment and income, can secure long-term supplies for people and protects the soil and our environment.
