« WHAT CAN BE DONE WITH PLASTIC WASTE? HOW CAN WE UPCYCLE PLASTIC WASTE? MAIN CONCERNS OF TODAY AND TOMORROW »
We value the amount of plastic waste spread in nature of 7 billion tons. With SENSE® Jean Dubost launches a 100% made in France new collection of kitchen knives made from plastic waste using the innovative and eco-designed material LE PAVE® and acts for the long term with a 25 years warranty.
100% Designed and made in Thiers, France
100% Recycled plastic handle
100% Circular economy and CSR
100% Limited carbon impact
The handles of our "Vintage 40% mini" range are made from at least 40% recycled and reused polypropylene material, from the rebuffs of our own manufacturing workshops. We recover the "carrots" (waste from previous productions), then upcycle them to make new handles. Depending on the waste collected, 40% to 100% are reused for the manufacture of the handles of our "Vintage 40% mini" range. An eco-designed collection in which the material of the handle comes from a 100% circular economy approach within our manufacture and 100% made in our workshops at viscomtat near Thiers capital of French cutlery.
Material recycling and biodegradability - the Line and Natura ranges:
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”.
100% recycled cardboard packaging, printed using natural plant-based inks ensures that the needs of both nature and table lovers are met.
