We all live in vulnerable eco-systems, and we should aim to preserve nature and live in harmony with all living organisms. PILLOW aims to contribute to sustainability, while also offering our customers great comfort and well-being while on travel.
As a customer of PILLOW, you naturally endorse the message of “clean air and sustainable nature”. The purpose of our product offering is that you enjoy travelling to new and unspoilt places, and that you interact with nature while spending time there.
PILLOW is small (24*5 cm) and weighs only 115 gram including filling. Hence, it requires a small amount of fabric and filling, while also upholding the goal of great comfort and rest for the neck muscles.
With sustainability in mind, PILLOW has selected a fabric of 100% PU leather with filling of polyester fiber. PU is an ultra durable, flexible and long lasting polymer, which does not wear down easily.
PU leather, or polyurethane leather, is an artificial leather made of thermoplastic polymer. 100% PU leather is completely artificial. No animals are harmed during the manufacturing process since it is 100% man made and requires no animals at all for the making. PU comes from fossil fuels, and producing PU is not yet entirely non-toxic. It also does not decompose when thrown away in nature, which we hope no-one of our customers do!
Sustainability wise, PU leather production takes up less ressources (like water) than leather.
Maintenance and hygiene is easy. Poyurethane is water resistant, and does not attract stains. PILLOW is easily cleaned solely with a damp cloth, and it sun-dries in a minute. No washing machine or detergents should be required. Please note that we offer covers which further secures durability and hygiene.
PILLOW comes in a small paper-box of 25*25*5 cm. The box offers any customer a product untouched by others at the time of purchase. This is an important hygiene factor. The box also aims to reduce further packing materials for despatch to customers, where possible.
Transportation from production to warehouses is mainly by ship. All travel requires energy, and shipping consumes fossil fuels. However, the shipping industry has come far with respect to the study of alternative energy use for the future. Hopefully, battery capacity can offer a new standard for future energy consumption at sea.
Please join us in suggesting further methods in order to secure our objective of sustainability.
