Top 10 - NNFCC's biobased Christmas Wishlist for 2021.

It’s that time of year again! The time where we go over the most exciting new sustainable products of 2021, and spend a moment wishing we owned them all… So here it is, our top 10 wish-list which we hope will give you some inspiration.

 

FJÄLLRÄVEN – Tree-Kånken backpack

FJÄLLRÄVEN backpacks have become a common sight in the past few years, and remain a token of quality in the minds of customers. Sustainability has always been at the heart of the company’s identity; a commitment that just keeps on getting stronger every year. In 2021, FJÄLLRÄVEN released its first ever backpack made from 100% biobased fabric. Dubbed Pine Weave, this new material is manufactured from spruce and pine trees sustainably grown in northern Sweden.

Thinksound – ov21

One of our favourites! Perfectly combining a beautiful design with the prospect of quality sound, all of that carefully wrapped within the comfort of sustainable craftmanship… The new ov21 headphones are partly made from Eastman Tr─ôva™, a bioplastic itself made from sustainable wood pulp. A slightly higher budget will be needed for that one, but nothing that a “common gift” situation can’t solve!

CHANEL – Les Eaux de Chanel

Ancient luxury houses such as Chanel are also making their move towards sustainable practices by introducing new design techniques and materials into their iconic products. The new “Les Eaux de Chanel” fragrance bottles now contain biobased caps, made from 91% biobased materials obtained from renewable resources and FSC™ certified wood chips. The design of the whole bottle was also improved to optimise feedstocks and transport needs, and facilitate waste valorisation down the line.
