“We always try our best to improve in terms of quality, but another major focus for me as a Product manager is to find new ways in the production to be more sustainable. With the new Bamboo series we are very happy to be able to find a new way in the production process to use natural materials to reduce the oil based materials with a minimum of 25%.”

WHY SHOULD I USE BAMBOO HOME TRAINING TOOLS?

Conscious choices start at home. And in our quest to achieve 100% conscious product by 2025 we are leaning more and more towards sustainable and eco-friendly materials, with bamboo being a prime candidate. Even though technically bamboo is a form of grass, it’s a very strong, durable and highly flexible material. Today there are a lot of natural ways to use bamboo as a signature sustainable material choice in combination with interior design and decor. Its beautiful aesthetic is a great plus, often being a selling point which convinces many to adopt the eco-friendly route.
