Respectful packaging and promotional materials
At nanimarquina, the packaging, labeling and accessories of our products offer adequate protection and conservation as well as taking sustainability criteria into account.
The label and packaging of the rugs are made using 100% organic cotton endorsed by the world's leading textile processing standard for natural fibers GOTS. This is presented naturally, that is, without undergoing any dyeing process, which entails less water consumption. In addition, the packaging is reusable, which leaves behind the linear and short-term approach based on 'take-make-dispose'.
It should be noted that the use of organic cotton entails a lower contribution to global warming (46%), soil erosion (26%), water consumption (91%) and energy demand (62%) compared to conventional cotton, according to indicates the global non-profit organization Textile Exchange .
For the protection of carpets in the logistics process (transport and storage), low-density polyethylene (LDPE) tubular sheet is currently used, which contains a high percentage of recycled plastic in its composition. The use of this type of plastic leads to a 20% reduction in CO2 emissions in the manufacturing process.
In the same way, the paper used for the brand's promotional material has the FSC certificate, which certifies that the wood used comes from forests managed according to the criteria of the Forest Stewardship Council, FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), which includes measures of sustainable management of the forest in ecological, social and economic aspects, among others. However, nanimarquina tries to minimize the use of paper and printing every year, promoting the use of digital formats.
