A producer of innovative and sustainable products made of human-friendly, nature-friendly, recyclable bioplastic, they have recently received a prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019 for their Bokashi Organko 2 composter.
- How do the international awards affect Plastika Skaza?
Our customers are the reason we are in the market. Our greatest reward is the long-lasting and trustworthy relationship we maintain with them. Professional awards, such as the Red Dot Award or the Solutions Award 2019 we received at the Ambiente Fair in Frankfurt, bring exceptional recognition and motivation to those directly involved in creating the product along with our employees. Awards give an added value to our product, building public awareness, trust, and reputation of our company as a whole. The awards reflect the excellence integrated in all our products.
- You develop plastic products made from recyclate and bio-based materials. Which type of materials or raw materials are involved, and from where do you obtain them?
We have devoted our mission to the manufacture of products representing a sustainable alternative to classic disposable plastics. Our bio-based materials are mainly produced from sugar cane, which is harvested in a strictly controlled manner and prevents long-term adverse effects on the environment. The products do not contain melamine or BPA (bisphenol A), which have harmful effects on humans and the environment. We wish everyone would be responsible for their little bit of the environment.
- How do consumers accept household products, e.g. picnic dishes, cups, and other products, made from natural materials, since the products are used for food?
Our customers are environmentally conscious. They have high expectations of companies. They are responsible inhabitants of our planet, who care about disposable plastics polluting our only home. Our products are made of bioplastics, which is based on natural raw materials, so customers are assured they are completely safe for use, reusable, and recyclable into new products after their lifespan expires. The customers appreciate us not only because of the materials we use, but also because of our innovation and design along with our bold colour selection.
- Plastika Skaza is also a furniture manufacturer. How much of the plastic used for the production of chairs has already been recycled?
We produce various elements for kitchen fittings, chairs, computer trolleys, and office furniture. The furniture designers and all those involved in the manufacturing take into account what the product will be used for in association with the standard of the materials used. Bio-based or recycled materials have already achieved certain functionalities, but not all of them; therefore, together with our partners, we have set a goal to implement purely biological materials or recyclates.
- What kind of innovations have you been working on?
We have just offered our customers an ECOCARE collection with organic products that combine all the aspects that are important to individuals. The collection, which also includes a special ECOCARE CUP, is made of a biomaterial (EcoBib). Its entire manufacturing process places a minimal burden on the environment. All products from the collection are intended for repeated use and ultimately recycling, which additionally reduces the burden on the environment. We are already preparing a new generation of the Bokashi Organko 2 composter and a variety of other solutions.
