Minimizing our ecological footprint.
100% Made in Germany
For us, it is important to understand the production processes in detail and to evaluate them with regard to sustainability aspects. That is why we have deliberately chosen to manufacture in Germany.
The climate-neutral production takes place in a German production facility, which is verified according to DIN EN ISO 50001 and works only with renewable energies. The manufacturing process is safe, innovative and environmentally friendly. By processing with pure water vapor, 96% of the resources needed in conventional plastic production are saved.
Expanded polypropylene (EPP) is one of the lightweights among polymer foams. With the lowest densities in the range of 20 to 200 kg/m3, EPP enables the use of fossil resources to be minimized because, in relation to the component volume, 75 to over 95 % of the molded part is filled by air.
The fact that the stuul consists of over 90% air alone allows us to save large quantities of material. We do not use plastic packaging and only use an environmentally friendly cardboard box.
Stuul is made entirely of the monomaterial EPP and is 100% recyclable. Returns can be fed back into the material cycle without loss.
The recycled content in all our stuuls is up to 25%. Stuul Ocean also consists of a high percentage of recycled waste from the maritime industry, such as discarded fishing nets and boxes.
100 % Innovative
Even in these challenging times we never tire of talking about our environment. We are very happily announcing the latest addition to our stuul® family: stuul® Ocean
We directly target marine pollution and make a positive contribution to the environment by pioneering the first premium consumer product made from expanded polypropylene using 15% recycled content from marine industry waste.
For more detailed information on this unique recyclable material, please visit the manufacturer's website.
You would probably expect this premium product to come in a premium package.
That‘s understandable and nowadays many big brands do exactly that. So this was also our first approach but we finally decided against it.
Our holistic approach on minimizing our ecological footprint also includes the topic of packaging. Here we act according to the guideline: „As much as necessary, as little as possible.“ Therefore, we completely avoid the use of plastic packaging and send the stuul only in a single cardboard box.
This box is also made of grass paper, which has many ecological advantages. Grass is a fast-growing raw material that conserves forests and can be produced with significantly less water consumption than conventional paper production. It consists of 40% grass content, with the remaining portion made from waste paper fiber. It is also 100% recyclable and compostable
