Mixcycling is collaborating with Forever Bambù Società Benefit, the first Italian organization that coordinates and brings together 29 agricultural companies that, since 2014, has been planting about 200.000 Giant Bamboo plants on over 200 hectares in Italy.
The bamboo forests are cultivated on abandoned agricultural land, according to the principles of organic and symbiotic agriculture, following Forever Bambù’s project of sustainable and circular economy.
Why the Giant Bamboo?
A bamboo forest – when managed according to a particular protocol designed by Forever Bambù – has the ability to produce more oxygen and absorb more than 36 times the CO2 of a forest of the same size: just consider that in the first eight years of life it absorbs over 1000 kg of CO2 that it sequesters in its fibers. Moreover, thanks to the particular characteristics of Giant Bamboo, its cultivation does not require the use of pesticides or constant human intervention. The bamboo trees remain productive for over a century, purifying the air but also the earth. Their roots absorb the harmful substances of the soil and transform them into oxygen.
Mixcycling has developed a new blend using the fibers provided by the Forever Bambù supply chain and proposed it to us to create new sustainable packaging lines for cosmetics and fragrances. Needless to say, our R&D department immediately started testing the potential of this new material, with truly satisfying results.
And so, after a few months of planning and testing, we can finally introduce our new SWEET HOME BAMBOO line. A collection of closures and accessories for home fragrances made of Mixcycling Bamboo: an innovative sustainable material, with a natural look and excellent ability to preserve the scent of the home fragrance.
Save the planet... With style!
Very often we come across packs for cosmetics made of sustainable, biodegradable or bio-based materials that are aesthetically anonymous or rough. In these cases sustainability is justly a priority, but at the expense of aesthetics and design. But why should sustainability exclude beauty? Sustainability is beauty.
Rice: a concentration of health, beauty and sustainability
It is well known that rice is one of the most consumed foods and that its whole version is a real nutritional panacea: a treasure trove of fibres, minerals and phytonutrients. Today numerous cosmetic companies use ingredients derived from this cereal, such as rice bran oil or rice starch, for their cosmetic formulas for skincare and hair care products.
From PACK to imPACKt in business
When it comes to packaging, we focus on materials, shape, performance and costs. At Livingcap these dimensions are part of a broader vision, framed as a real IMPACKT EXPERIENCE, because every luxury packaging project must be conceived, right from the start, according to the impact it can generate - including the impact on the brand image, consumer perception, sales and on the planet.
Circular design in the packaging of perfume
When we buy a perfume, the first approach is assigned to the packaging which, involving and attracting all the senses, has the task of revealing to us the fragrance’s character and the experience it’s going to offer us. Each element of the packaging plays an essential role...
Livingcap becomes a benefit company!
Livingcap has become a benefit company! This means that Livingcap is committed to acting for the common benefit in different fields. Besides carrying on our respectful attitude for the environment by choosing low impact materials for our projects and collaborating with partners sharing our philosophy and values, we are planning more initiatives.
An easy solution to the circular economy
Generally the circular economy is defined as an economic system of production and consumption, which involves sharing, reusing, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products as long as possible. How does Livingcap contribute to such a virtuous system?
Livingcap, Mixcycling and the SID collaboration
Recently, delegates from Livingcap spent some time with the students of SID (Scuola Italiana Design) in Padua. It is always incredibly exciting to see the first creative output from students at this school! And this time it was even more interesting because the topic of their study was very stimulating!
Sughera Avalon - when beauty and comfort meet
