Since 1946, keeping our customers happy has been our driving force. To cater for a world that is constantly in motion, we've come up with lots of innovations. Each one of them has made our luggage more robust, easier to manoeuvre and of higher quality, providing the most discerning customers with comfort, security and ease. We listen to our customers' expectations and take care to meet them and this has resulted in a shared bond with millions of travellers throughout the world who put their trust in us. This trust, as well as an awareness of environmental issues, motivates us to keep pushing forward. And, in order to give you the very best, we will be using recycled material, which is more environmentally friendly, in some of our luggage. We've also adapted our services to make longer lasting products.
In 2019, we will be continuing to take measures to improve things. DELSEY Paris is making its sustainability goal official with 2 key pledges: reducing plastic waste pollution and supporting fair travel.
We have been managing the resources we use to make our products since 2013 by integrating 30% recycled materials into some of our products and removing any excess materials from our luggage. In 2019, our minimalist, resource efficient luggage will be launched as well as our 100% R-Pet range. R-PET, also known as recycled PET, is a material made from water and drinks bottles which have been washed and crushed. This recycled material plays a part in minimising the green house effect, helps to save energy and protects the planet from pollution linked to plastic waste. For each suitcase that DELSEY makes using R-PET, up to 15 plastic bottles begin a new life!
Extending the life of our luggage and making it easy for it to be reused and recycled is a process that we are speeding up by creating even more practical, easy to access services. And we'll take extending the life cycle of our product one step further in a unique blend of sustainability and design at the end of this year.
We are working with Ulule to support those working towards fair travel. We want to help ensure your dream trips have a positive impact and have decided to support those creating better access to green tourism. We will share their vision, journey and great ideas. To mark the beginning of our partnership with ULULE, the community-backed incubator of positive impact projects, we have chosen to support the very first travel guide for sustainable, community friendly, ecological, volunteer based travel. This guide book is full of pledges and sustainable solutions for eco travellers! To find out more and take part in #TheGreenMove adventure, check out delseyplanet.ulule.com
