What do Kyoto Protocol, Greta Thunberg, and The Blue Angel certificate have in common? They all care about our current impact on the environment and what kind of future it set for us.

Who? What? When? Where? and Why?

Not so long ago, when you purchased a product, you wouldn’t think much about its effect on the environment. Nowadays, shoppers are much more demanding, and environmental needs are far more significant. Every time you make a purchase, you ultimately decide directly or indirectly about its impact on water, soil, air, or your own health.

But how can an everyday person know if a product meets all the necessary criteria to be considered environmentally friendly?

This is where certification like the Blue Angel come in handy. If you use products or services holding the Blue Angel eco-label, you can be sure that you are doing something good for yourself, the environment, and the future.

Around 12,000 environmentally friendly products and services from approximately 1,600 companies have been awarded the Blue Angel, and our company MODEPACK is one of them. 

How did we get here?

Everything we do, we do with long term positive effect on the environment in mind. This led us to our Circular Mode concept, which achieves a full post-consumer recycling capability, resulting in reusing the material that would otherwise have gone to landfill. Ultimately our products are then made with at least 80% of post-consumer recycled material. And that placed us in the Blue Angel category called “Environmentally friendly recycled plastics.” (www.blauer-engel.de/uz30a)

This recycled plastic is plastic with a past and a future, and its 2 main environmental benefits are:

  • at least 80% recycled plastic or film with at least 80% recycled plastic,
  • limitation of pollutants.

Do you know that 70% of European e-shoppers expect that brands & companies should be environmentally responsible?

Basically, our products holding the Blue Angel eco-label play a big part in creating added value to your product and brand. This added value reflects not only on the environment but also on how your brand is viewed. Why is this essential? Because shopping habits and ways have changed in more than one way, and they keep changing. Consumers are more inclined to shop online. They are also very clear about their sustainability expectations. More than 50% make sure to buy environmentally friendly products when possible, and 43% are willing to pay premium products respectful of the environment. If we do not meet their expectations, that won’t be good for our collective business.
