Our boxes are made by Iggesund, a Swedish paperboard company dedicated to sustainability and helping to mitigate climate change. Their paper products, used as boxes for our products, are sourced from sustainably managed Swedish forests, meaning they put back in to Mother Earth exactly what they take out. Iggesund Mill itself is actually biofuel-powered. Needless to say it’s a company we are extremely proud to be working with, and delighted to place our products in, as we know beauty starts with the product packaging.
“I grew up in an extremely environmentally conscious Swedish home, meaning that every single scrap of paper needed to be disposed of in the right recycle bin- nothing went to waste- not-a-thing! This is in our Swedish DNA- we nurture nature and seek out to be close to it, and therefore we need to be extra careful and respectful to not disrupt Mother Nature. Iggesund was such an obvious choice for us. We didn’t hesitate for a second, and to see them care for a seed of a tree and look at the forest like its their baby made our hearts burst even more. This relationship is here to stay,” Martina, FACE Stockholm CEO
PAPERBOARD IS CREATED USING THREE
MAIN RAW MATERIALS:
WATER, WOOD AND ENERGY
Water is key ingredient in all papermaking. Iggesund uses water to transport and wash fibres in their mills. Only surface water, taken from lakes and rivers is used.
Iggesund’s operation is based on renewable and carbon-neutral raw material wood, which provides products that can be recycled as both material and energy.
Iggesund Paperboard has removed fossil emissions from the production process. Thus, they are able to manufacture their products while maintaining a low carbon footprint.
” It’s all about having the right chemistry and similar values, but both parties also need to feel that they gain from partnering and thus develop and/or learn from it. I felt strong connection when we meet Martina and Gun to discuss cooperation, and again when the two of them came to Sweden for an Iggesund experience. Our Swedish roots, our urge for continuous improvements and wanting to contribute to a more sustainable and, at the same time, beautiful society are reasons for a strong link between us. ” – Jessica, Iggesund Marketing Lead
