Zero Burn focuses on the transition from a linear to a circular production process. It reduces a company’s impact on the environment and society, while also decreasing its dependency on outside sources.
Now, to make responsible and well founded decisions we’ve invited Circular Economy consultant Heleen de Fooij to pay the Feltouch factory a visit. Her analyze pf the current situation points out that Feltouch has already made an important step towards circularity by replacing virgin polyester into recycled PET, as well the use of water based products to color and glue.
Examples of opportunities are to focus on multifunctional design to reduce the amount of products needed and reduce production waste. She also pointed out risks to consider, for example micro plastic pollution while recycling.
Currently Feltouch is using outcome of this important quick scan to make responsible decisions in its Zero Burn journey.
