Let’s plant together
over 50 billions trees
“We will contribute to the global effort of planting over 50 billions trees, aiming to restore woods and forests for up to 10% of the involved territories, regenerating natural habitats and biodiversity and protecting the rights of local workers” Stefano Bordone, company President.
We will realize this project thanks to the partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects, an American no-profit company that has been committed to fight the effects of climate change for years.
From now on, those who choose our products will play an active role in the project. For each product sold, we will allocate a percentage of its revenues to Eden Reforestation Projects to support the reforestation in Kenya.
Our mission? Sustain the re-flourishing of ecosystems allowed by the reduction of CO2 emissions in favour of oxygen.
and social sustainability project
The involvement of local communities is of primary importance. They will play an active part in restoring the forests they have seen torn down during the years. Through the application of techniques that allow trees to be planted effectively, we will generate new job opportunities and improving the conditions and life prospect of the inhabitants.
A thousand steps
always start from the first one.
We sign a metaphorical agreement with trees becoming “guardians” of the forest, but above all we are committed in becoming promoters of eco-sustainable ideas and behaviours. We support Trentino Tree Agreement to help restore the Violins Forest destroyed in 2018 by the fury of Vaia storm, to create a virtuous chain that spreads in the collective consciousness.
The support for Trentino Tree Agreement represents the natural evolution of the Kushi Wood Edition project, the special version of the unique Kushi lamp. The rod was made of spruce wood recovered from the trees destroyed by Vaia storm. A tribute to nature. A symbolic contribution, born from the belief that every single action can be significant and makes a difference.
Towards a sustainable business
Economic development whilst respecting the environment: this is Kdln's main commitment. We are making and will continue to make ecological choices to create the smallest impact, by undertaking responsible and conscious actions for us and for the planet. The KDLN Green project aims to convey the main sustainable initiatives that touch us most closely. The aim is to continue creating a sustainable circular model, preserving an effective synergy between us, our work and the environment.
Our commitment to ensuring a lower environmental impact also involves the reduction and reuse of waste generated by production and consumption activities. Well in advance of European regulations, we banned single-use plastic from our headquarters in favor of products made of paper, wood and other compostable materials. Through small but significant expedients we are progressively reducing the creation of waste. An example? The water dispenser connected to the water mains guarantees safe water for all company employees and guests, avoiding the consumption of disposable bottles and glasses.
With the aim of reducing the environmental impact of our packaging, we are replacing all virgin plastic bags with recycled material bags, and we are eliminating polystyrene in favor of cardboard. Every single package is designed to reduce the overall dimensions to a minimum, while guaranteeing the protection and resistance necessary for the safe transport of the products. Reducing the volume of packaging is essential for optimizing the storage and especially the transport of products, thus reducing CO2 emissions.
Spazio Elvezia becomes the vehicle of the message “Plan (T) the future”, the reforestation activity of which we are ambassadors. By accrediting their presence in the showroom, guests actively participate in safeguarding the planet by planting a tree in Kenya and giving work to local populations.
This project is possible thanks to periodic donations from Kdln to the American non-profit company Eden Reforestation Projects.
