Environment is an important topic for us. Since 2019 we’ve been launching our strategy for more eco-friendly solutions in the production and the entire selling process. The MORE Eco strategy consists of 5 steps. One of them is our new collection of mannequins IN TOUCH.
IN TOUCH with the Environment
What makes the brand’s new line so special? It’s the environmentally friendly material, which the mannequins are made of. The male and female mannequins in this collection are made of PU and ABS.
Advantages and disadvantages of PU and ABS
PU (polyurethane) and ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) are much more environmentally friendly than fibreglass.
PU has the same impact on the environment after production as the raw material, with ABS the impact of the final product is even half as low.
Products made of PU and ABS are also very robust. So once you have bought a mannequin you can use it for years.
They can also be recycled, renovated and reused.
Mannequins made of PU are heavier than those made of fibreglass, but their weight guarantees a better stability of the figures.
The production of ABS mannequins can be easily automated. Although the mould is more expensive, the price of the final product is lower. This allows us to produce more mannequins in a shorter time and at a lower price without harming the environment.
What does the future hold? The change to nature-conscious production is our objective for the next years. By 2023, 90% of our mannequins will be made of PU and ABS.
