Why is it sustainable?
The Restore basket is made of felt derived from recycled PET bottles. Plastic bottles are chopped in tiny pieces that are melted and blown in the form of fibres. These fibres are then used to make felt sheets that are heated and pressed into a mould to give them their final shape.
Muuto strives to embrace sustainable practices throughout the entire supply chain.
Box packaging is made from at least 65% recycled material and retail shopping bags are made from at least 90% recycled material. Aiming at eliminating plastic from packaging, Muuto has begun the discontinuation of styrofoam and has started replacing plastic bags with either reusable dust bags or paper bags.
Also, Muuto is now testing a take-back program from one particular product – the Fiber Chair – that recycles old chairs into new ones.
