Our mission is to make our everyday life rooms always more comfortable and safe thanks to the use of certified and eco-sustainable components and home decor accessories. At the same time as a company we are committed to creating a healthy and stimulating work environment where people feel part of a change. We want to be among the protagonists of the 2030 Agenda and guarantee our maximum commitment to make it happen.
We create home decor components and accessories that are 100% environmentally friendly, recyclable, or come from renewable sources and that are designed according to the principles of eco-design.
OUR VALUES - 1
Respect for the environment
We like to work on the present thinking about the future of the planet, a green planet liveable for future generations, who shouldn't be the victims of today's choices. Our relationship with nature is a fundamental emotional bond that we must no longer underestimate and that must enter our homes not only when we are outside, in a park or in a garden.
OUR VALUES -2
Respect for people and inclusiveness
At Rippotai we think that anyone with talent, inclusiveness is a concept that runs through our veins, as people and as a company. We believe that there are no differences but only excellences to which always give the right voice. We work with people for people.
OUR VALUES - 3
Rippotai is an innovative startup listed among the Responsible Innovators of Italian Emilia Romagna Region. Research and innovation allow us to constantly refine the design and production process following the principles of circular economy and eco-design.
OUR VALUES - 4
We feel it is our duty to create a culture of sustainability, ranging from environmental issues to social issues. Whoever will have to decide tomorrow, whatever the role they will play, will have to be prepared and have the right key to find new solutions to new problems. This is why we collaborate with schools and universities in projects that see sustainable culture at the center of every path.
Rippotai's promise is to act concretely for the environment and the future of our planet.
Eco-sustainability is our corporate prerequisite: in nature there is no waste, everything is recyclable and so it must be achievable as much as possible in the company. We recover production waste: we do it through recycling in the manufacturing process , and often also by adopting the philosophy of creative reuse in the development of new products.
In designing we follow the principles of eco-design: materials with low environmental impact, coming from sustainable processes and free of hazardous or noxious substances; we try to use the least possible number of materials in the same product, also reducing the quantity, to reduce weight and volume, with efficient folding and stacking systems. Each product is designed to satisfy multifunctionality.
Making a market for us also means creating culture: we want to start from this assertion and involve the consumer with a virtuous offer. Of course generating profit is important to continue to offer quality products but it will never be our one and only point of reference, rather a requirement to grow and be able to do better and better.
Certified and sustainable supply chain : All our partners are expected to ensure the transparency, quality and safety we expect from our products and to share our code of ethics and conduct. The organization and control of the supply chain allows us to optimize the production and distribution process, reducing the processing phases, scraps, waste and using less energy.
For our shipments we use packaging recovery or made with recycled and recyclable material.
Optimized transport: from the place of procurement of raw materials to the place of their processing to finally arrive at storage in the warehouse we prefer an entire virtuous path as local and concentrated as possible.
The circular economy redesigns the existing optimizing processes compared to the past, extends the life cycle of products and minimizes waste. The disposal and disassembly of our products is quick and easy, ready to be reintroduced into the virtuous cycle of our creativity.
Our products, healthy bearers of eco-sustainability
The words "respect for the planet", "sustainability" and "new lifestyles" for us are not mere greenwashing but research and innovation , in sustainable materials, in the reuse of waste and in creation of objects and home decor items that, in addition to being 100% recyclable, acquire a new life and function after use.
The main design and production requirements of our products and their resulting life cycle are:
1. recyclable, eco-friendly or renewable material;
2. in the assembly the presence of adhesives is reduced to a minimum or is even absent;
3. printing with eco-friendly water-based inks;
4. during use at home, the product does not release or emit any harmful emissions;
5. the product has a long life and high or total recyclability at the time of disposal;
6. the production cycle has a low environmental impact, starting from the use of the material used for its transformation.
