SUSTAINABILITY

 


Regionality

Short delivery routes are very important to us. That's why you will definitely not find a "made in China" label on our products. On the contrary - from the initial idea to the final result, from design to production and sales, everything takes place in the Alpine-Adriatic-Area. If you buy our products, you can be sure that they did not travel halfway across the world first.

 

Materials

It is a major concern to ideally not produce plastic for our planting products anymore. Therefore, we have been looking for recycled materials for PAUL POTATO, SISSI STRAWBERRY, TOM TOMATO etc. for a very long time. At the moment, our planting products are entirely made of high-quality, food-safe polypropylene and the climbing supports of pure aluminum. This means that every Gusta Garden product is 100% recyclable.

Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to find recycled materials from post-consumer waste, which completely meet our requirements. On the one hand, the material has to be food-safe (does not release any harmful substances to fruits and vegetables), as well as temperature-resistant and, on the other hand, it has to be very durable.  After all, our planting products are always exposed to water, wind, rain, sun, heat, cold and so on.

But don't worry! Since we care a lot about sustainability, we are working intensively on alternate materials along with our partners to also ensure the production of food-safe planting products also in the future. 

 

Packaging

Sustainability is paramount also for packing materials. Our product packagings are designed to be both packaging and shipping box. Therefore, no further packing is required. 
In the choice of  material, we focus on a high amount of recycled paper. 100% recycled paper is used whenever this is possible.

SUSTAINABILITY

Regionality

Short delivery routes are very important to us. That's why you will definitely not find a "made in China" label on our products. Quite contrary, we are very proud that we can call us regional. From the initial idea to the final result, from design to production and sales, everything takes place in the Alpine-Adriatic-Area, completely CO2 neutral. So, if you buy our products, you can be sure, that they don't had to travel around the world.

Materials

It is a major concern to ideally not produce plastic for our planting products anymore. Therefore, we are very proud of the fact that in the current financial year in total 75% of our processed materials are recycled plastic. This so called post-consumer waste, such as usual household waste was diposed correctly, recycled and further processed. The material we use is high-quality, food-safe and a 100% recyclable.

Additionally, our products are designed to be very durable, even under the hardest weather conditions. So they  are going to provide joy for many years.
Through the opportunity to grow your own fruits and vegetables even on a small balcony, we also prevent harmful "single use" plastic in form of vegetable and fruit packagings.

Our future goal is to constantly increase the percentage of  recycled materials in our production. Along with our partners we are also working on the development of alternate materials for our planting products.
