When designing RePack, it was really important to have a really protective, waterproof, and soft material that would stand the test of time.
We found our perfect fit, polypropylene. However, there’s no way we’re using virgin plastic. RePacks are made from recycled polypropylene. In human terms, this material is the most common plastic around. However, it’s not so easy to recycle and creates a lot of waste. Fortunately, we have a great partner that can turn objects like old refrigerators into RePacks and can recycle them again.
(Yes, we’re aware it’s plastic and not a sexy bio-based material made from fungus. But plastic really is an issue when it’s single-use. You can read more about our hate for single-use packaging right there. Have fun).
