Tucano for a sustainable future
Bags, backpacks and accessories made from recycled plastic materials? It’s all part of our green philosophy, the foundation of a sustainable path that has been constantly broadening over the last years. A challenge as exciting as it is necessary, which encourages us to continually seek out new ideas, technologies and materials to make a concrete contribution in a period marked by significant environmental issues
But how can plastic be given a second life? Once they’ve been collected, the plastic bottles are ground up into small pieces, melted, and then transformed through a low-impact process.
Our ecological materials
Eco-nylon, and eco-polyester, eco-friendly mesh and coated or elastic fabrics. Since the first products made in R-PET, our constant technological research allows us to select from an increasingly broad range of new sustainable materials.
We’re not satisfied with just designing new sustainable products every day, we’re also revisiting our most iconic collections in an eco-friendly way, because we want to implement the kind of large-scale transformation. To make an R-PET backpack, up to 30 bottles are saved from the landfill.
Our bags are also made of recycled PET and we’re constantly moving forward by expanding our eco-friendly products in different channels. Consumer Electronics, Luggage & Travel… An increasingly large pool of end consumers to whom we can communicate our eco message.
The first eco-cover for tablets
There are no limits to innovation, especially when it comes to sustainability. Our latest news for 2021? A brand-new, eco-friendly wardrobe for tablets and iPads! Each of these covers, made from recycled plastic materials, allows you to keep about 3 plastic bottles out of the landfill.
Sleeve, a green icon
This year we’ve also given a green touch to our most iconic products: sleeves. Made with an external fabric obtained from recycled plastic bottles, Tucano’s Second Skin® collections protect your devices and respect the environment.
Our eco-friendly foldables
Maximum sustainability folded up into the minimum amount space, from the smallest to the largest model for which up to 24 plastic bottles are kept out of the landfill.
