WHAT WE DO TO REDUCE OUR
ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT

Our goal is to make the world around us more beautiful with our products, but not at the expense of people, animals and nature around us.
That is why we consciously choose our materials and our partners.
It is our mission to constantly innovate our production processes to make them as sustainable as possible.

AKUprintti Frame aluminum

The production of aluminum is energy intensive. Fortunately it can be recycled 100%. Our leftover pieces are used in other projects and if this is not possible they are given a new life by having them recycled to new frames.

AKUprintti Frame fabric

The fabric we use is made of 1/3 recycled PET (old plastic bottles), The inks used for the prints are water-based and solvent-free. They have the Nordic Swan and Green Guard eco labels. The entire fabric can be recycled.

AKUprintti Felt panels

The acoustic felt panels are made of 100 % recycled PET (old plastic bottles), The inks used for the prints are water-based and solvent-free. The remnants of the acoustic panels can be recycled entirely at the plastic recycling.

AKUprintti Frame acoustic panels

The acoustic panels are made of at least 50 % recycled PET. The remnants of the acoustic panels can be recycled through the plastic recycling or clothing recycling center.

If we cannot use the residual material ourselves, we will have it recycled or upcycled. We are open to schools, associations and companies that can use 1 of our materials to make something new. Please contact us if you have ideas to upcycle . For example we already donated acoustic rest pieces to a school for acoustic art projects.

GIVING BACK TO NATURE

Before a new AKUprintti product is installed, all the parts have made a journey to get to you. We aim to find production partners as close as possible, but there is always some travel to be made. This journey increases the ecological footprint of AKUprintti. To compensate this, we decided to plant a tree in Finnish Lapland for every installed AKUprintti.

We are happy to do this in collaboration with Halipuu. It’s founders Riitta and Steffan plant all saplings on their own plot in Levi, Finnish Lapland every spring. They are also known as the campfire Barista and for their TreeHugging World Championship. Check out their website for info. You can also purchase a Lappish tree or sapling with them directly or book their activities.
