The Finnish manufacturer of ecological dishware and survival gear, Kupilka, will move towards launching a circular economy system. The pilot program started on 1st January 2022 in Germany.
The pilot will be implemented in cooperation with the company’s German distributor, Impress Markets GmbH. During the pilot phase, customers residing in Germany can send their Kupilka products at the end of their life cycle to Impress Markets GmbH’s return address in Germany.
At the end of the 6-month test period, Kupilka will organize a return delivery of those products collected in Germany, back to the company’s production site in Kontiolahti, Finland. The returned items will then be brought back to life as new products in Kupilka’s carbon neutral production facilities. Like pure plastics, Kupilka’s natural fibre composite material gets even stronger when reprocessed.
Following the test phase of this circular economy system in Germany, Kupilka will launch the system internationally with a final rollout planned for 2023.
For many years, Kupilka outdoor products have received genuine popularity among hikers, hunters, campers, bushcraft teachers, courtyard cooks and other friends of nature, with recyclable and natural properties. Kupilka products are made from the company’s own biomaterial and the production process is carbon neutral. The product range includes cups, plates, bowls, eating utensils as well as knives and firesteels. All Kupilka products are manufactured in Finland using EKOenergy.
