Ribbons based on natural or recycled fibres
Proposing solutions based on recycled or natural materials is a long-standing commitment from the ribbon manufacturer, Neyret.
Its environmental and societal approach, which colours its guiding principles and strategic values on a daily basis, is reflected in its portfolio. “Today, more than 20% of our production has already switched over from conventional materials to materials that address the requirements of ecological transition, and this figure keeps on growing,” says Sylvain Rivoire, Marketing & Design Manager.
The company has expanded its portfolio to include ribbons made using natural fibres deriving from seaweed or paper. It also continues to deploy recycled polyester on its production lines, made from a polymer derived from the reprocessing of plastic bottles by mechanical treatment, the production of which significantly reduces water consumption. The supplier is located in Italy. “We favour European suppliers with a short supply chain,” specifies Sylvain Rivoire. This allows the company to offer its customers the guarantee of reduced carbon emissions by limiting transport and by guaranteeing the traceability of its materials.
All Neyret’s strategic partners are CSR-audited across their entire chain of production by specialised firms (selected by Neyret) and are signatories of its ethical charter and of a demanding legal framework.
The Neyret ribbon that adds aesthetic value to luxury packaging also features natural quality in its finishing, with the use of clean and controlled inks and dyes, certified Oeko-tex®Standard 100 or GOTS.
For packing its ribbons, the company has done away with plastic reels in favour of reusable and sustainable reels, and spools made of cardboard, wood or PLA.
