Carbon neutrality and Woodly
Carbon neutrality refers to a situation in which CO2 emissions don’t exceed the amount that can be sequestered into carbon sinks. The most important carbon sinks of the world are the forests and oceans. In order to achieve global carbon neutrality, all CO2 emissions in the world should be captured. In the pursuit of carbon neutrality, sustainable use of natural resources is in a key position. Woodly’s main raw material, wood-based pulp, is from FSC certified forests that are managed according to international ecological and ethical standards. In addition to being recyclable, Woodly is also completely carbon-neutral. Carbon neutrality means that the carbon footprint of Woodly is zero. Producing it causes no CO2 emissions and Woodly in itself sequesters carbon dioxide.

Orthex, a leading Nordic manufacturer of durable household goods, is the first company to launch durable products made of cellulose-based Woodly plastic. According to Alexander Rosenlew, CEO of Orthex, what is particularly interesting about Woodly’s material is the fact that it is transparent, despite being bio-based. These products, made of Woodly plastic, will be launched during 2021 and will be available for sale in Orthex Group’s online store as well as in selected retail stores. Orthex Group aims to have carbon neutral production by 2030. Read here more about Woodly’s collaboration with Orthex.
