Sustainability at Trixie
At Trixie sustainability is central in the broad sense of the word and this is reflected in various areas. When developing a new product it is critically analysed whether the product will actually fulfil the set requirements and functions.
Take the drinking bottle, for example. This is light, can be used independently by young children, replaces plastic bottles and does not leak, which makes it a useful product that meets a real need. In addition the products are always made from quality materials that guarantee a long lifespan. In case of the drinking bottle, this is stainless steel.
In terms of textile products we aim to use organic cotton as much as possible and pay extra attention to products that come into close contact with the skin. All bed and bath articles are made from organic cotton. The entire clothing line is also GOTS certified.
Sustainability also translates itself in the care for products. Proper washing and maintenance instructions extend the lifespan of the products. For example, it is recommended to wash the drinking bottle by hand instead of in the dishwasher so the product enjoys a longer lifespan.
Many efforts are also made in terms of packaging. Plastic is kept to a minimum and replaced by paper packaging or biodegradable bags.
