Jean Dubost takes an innovative approach with its 100% recyclable Line and Natura ranges of kitchen and tableware: a 100% recyclable stainless steel blade and a unique handle, the result of advanced research (a project launched in 2008), all to serve the environment. These handles are made from a plant-based bioplastic based on cornstarch, a renewable resource which ensures that they are 100% COMPOSTABLE and BIODEGRADABLE. A range which was recognised in 2018 at the Exclusively Housewares trade fair in London by trend consultancy Scarlet Opus for the Design Trend – ECO 2.0 #ownyourownimpact category: this eco-design category recognises “a new direction and awareness of the eco-design movement, to ensure that each of us becomes aware of our personal impact on the environment and society”.
