Rebel Walls cares about the environment and has ever since the start of 2012 contained progressive sustainability work. Here is a list of 9 initiatives we are a little extra proud of.
We do not want to take off the earth’s non-renewable resources. Therefore all of the electricity for printing- and processing machines for our production in Borås is produced entirely by renewable energy sources such as water- and wind power.
We offer a customized product and keep no stock with wallpaper that risks being dated and discarded.
Our wallpapers are printed on Non-woven FSC Certified paper. FSC is an independent, international non-profit, multi-stakeholder organization that works for an environmentally-friendly and viable use of the world’s forests.
Rebel Walls uses the Xerography printing technology, which is 100% pure from solvents and other harmful substances. Our wallpapers are completely free from damaging VOC substances and have no negative impact on people, animals or nature.
Everything we need to make our wall murals comes from a rather modest area. The paper in non-woven quality comes from Germany. The toner comes from Belgium and the wallpaper paste comes from Sweden.
The raw material is transported to us by boat, airplane and truck. The paper is purchased in large quantities in order to need as few deliveries as possible, currently 2 times a year. For the transport of our finished product, we only use experienced couriers with pronounced environmental strategies.
The customized wallpaper paste we offer for free is made from modified potato starch. It comes in the form of powder and the end client adds water from his och her own tap to activate the paste, this enables us to send lighter packages with a reduced environmental impact.
Cardboard and shock absorbing packaging is made of corrugated cardboard that is 100% recyclable.
First of all – we get very little waste material due to a well-thought-through production. But the waste we do get; cardboard, metals, etc we recycle locally in Borås.
