Wenaas works continuously to improve our design and purchasing practices, and to promote sustainable and high-quality eco-friendly products. We seek to reduce our negative impact on the environment all while considering the entire lifecycle of a product, from design, sourcing of certified materials, production processes to packaging and disposal.
Our eco-friendly products are often made from more durable and environmental materials, with significantly less waste, water, and energy to produce. It also supports and aligns with the global agenda of sustainability - The United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We believe that we are part of the solution, rather than the problem and by promoting these products we ensure fair trade and eco-friendly consciousness in every development step, all with the intention to minimize the product’s total environmental impact.
