When Boie USA first started, we knew we needed to use a sustainable, recyclable material for all of our products—definitely easier said than done. After doing lots (and lots and lots) of research, we settled on TPE, a type of plastic that can be melted down and reformed again and again. We know, we talk about it all the time.
To start the process of recycling however, we needed you guys to send your old products back to us, which took a while because Boie products last for a very long time. Now we’re incorporating those returned products into our new bathroom Hook! The recycled products get melted down and turned into a material called ‘regrind’, which is then mixed in with new material to create the Hooks.
Eventually, the goal is to have enough old products to recycle that we can start incorporating more and more recycled material and less and less virgin material into each item we make.
