KUPILKA - ECO DISHWARE & SURVIVAL GEAR
Whether enjoying a luxury dinner or camping in extreme conditions, our products bring Nordic edge to your memorable outdoor moments.
The ecological Kupilka dishware can withstand boiling hot water and sub-zero temperatures as cold as -30°C. The dishes can be washed by hand in the wild or in the dishwasher back home. The products are manufactured from our own biomaterial using EKOenergy, and each item ages beautifully yet keeping its qualities. You can check how fresh the product is from its wooden scent – the stronger the scent, the newer the product! To ensure the longevity of the dishes, we do not recommend putting them in the microwave, stove or open fire. At the end of their life span, the products can be recycled, incinerated for heat energy or returned to the manufacturer for re-use. The Kupilka packaging is made from recycled cardboard.
According to a study conducted by an independent consultant, the carbon footprint of the manufacture of Kupilka products and Kareline natural fibre composite is zero (0 kg CO2-eq). The study was performed in accordance with the main principles of ISO 14040 and ISO 14044. The most popular product of the Kupilka range, Kupilka 21 cup and teaspoon in triangular packaging, was selected as the subject of the study.
How is it possible to achieve zero CO2 emissions?
1. All waste flows of the production phase are re-used.
2. Electricity used in the production is carbon neutral (EKOenergy).
3. Heating of the factory is performed using waste heat flows and carbon neutral electricity.
The carbon footprint is 0.23 kg CO2-eq when the raw material procurement and transportation processes, the manufacture of Kupilka product and the purchase of packaging materials (production and transport) are included in the calculation. Equally low carbon footprint is achieved by growing 1.2 kg of potatoes. The majority (over 65%) of the whole life cycle’s carbon footprint is caused by washing of the product. Kupilka recommends washing the products with consideration and using eco-friendly detergents.
