The material is perhaps the most obvious to work with to increase durability. It is complicated, especially when making products that largely consist of plastic, which is a fossil-based material. There are really only three different possible paths to take if you want to change, and none is easy:
For our products, the only realistic alternative today is to work with recyclable plastic. Our products are injection molded today at our partner Talent in Estonia, and it has proved more difficult than we thought to get access to the quantities and right quality of recycled plastic required.
Today, we work to try to gain access to material flows from recycled plastic, while we make sure that all parts that are not used, and all products that are returned are ground down and become new Mousetrappers. I wish we had come further, but that’s the reality. The question is central to us and I promise that as soon as it becomes possible to find a sustainable material, no one is happier than me to try it! As long as we try to change as quickly as possible to completely use recycled plastic.
“Today, more and more people want to work with recycled plastic, which is fantastic. At the same time, we see that the need to create better solutions so that plastic is recycled correctly must be simplified, for both consumers and industry, ”says Roomet Soome, CEO of Talent Plastics.
