Research and development projects can last for years. Time is the biggest challenge for those who are anxious to bring innovation, novelties and revolutions on the markets and in consumers’s lives.
Research and development projects require patience, method and hope, especially when it comes to such sensitive and felt subjects, such as environmental sustainability, the safety of all of us and the safeguard of the Earth’s and its inhabitants’ health.
We wanted it at all costs, our consumers asked for it, tomorrow it will surely be imposed by the legislation. Here is, at last, the first Cotoneve entirely biodegradable and compostable cotton bud, from raw material to packaging. And it’s just the beginning.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY AT 360 DEGREES: COTONEVE ECO-PACK
Cotoneve is pleased to launch on the market its first pack of recycled paper and pure cotton buds in a PLA bag. PLA is a renewable raw material obtained from corn, completely biodegradable and compostable. Once it is disposed in the composting plants, it is transformed into soil and fertilizer for the soil.
COTONEVE INITIATIVES IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL FIELD
Eco-Pack is just one of Cotoneve initiatives in the field of environmental sustainability. At the beginning of 2019, in fact, we attested the biodegradability and compostability of Cotoneve in accordance with the UNI EN ISO 13432 standard. The tests found that both cotton pads and cotton buds are biodegradable and compostable.
As a symbol of our commitment we have chosen to depict a seahorse on our packagings, which makes them distinguishable and in line with a conscious and ecological choice.
Also, at the beginning of 2019 we relaunched the range of Cotoneve Motiv Box, our collection of cotton buds in a paper box, whose design is renewed seasonally according to the latest trends of Italian fashion. The use of paper in packaging allows us to reduce the quantity of plastic by 70% for every item. In addition, we chose to use FSC certified paper for the packaging and organic cotton for the sticks.
Cotoneve Motiv Box are GOTS certified by ICEA, a guarantee that the cotton products are made with natural fibers from Organic Agriculture without any use of synthetic chemical pesticides.
