With its RECYCLED PET PEN range, uma demonstrates that the end of a plastic bottle does not have to be 'the end'. Instead, it can be transformed into a durable promotional tool, one that translates the concept of sustainability into several forms. For example, the raw material rPET is obtained from the recycling process for PET bottles. This robust, durable material is well suited to promotional use over a long period, and in a sustainable manner. The entire production process for this writing instrument will be implemented within Europe. Also, through the use of the uma Jumbo lead, which simply writes and writes, the uma RECYCLED PET PEN makes a further sustainable contribution towards the conservation of our natural world.

Climate-neutral production – our contribution to climate protection. Climate change is currently one of the greatest challenges. In cooperation with ClimatePartner, we have calculated the emissions of our “RECYCLED PET PEN” product series and compensated them by regional climate protection projects.

uma wins PSI Sustainability Award 2017

With its RECYCLED PET PEN, uma has demonstrated that the end of the plastic bottle does not have to be ‘the end’. Old PET bottles are collected, washed and shredded. Then the resultant raw material is melted to form a granulate and is cast into moulds. This enables a 0.5 litre PET bottle to be turned into a uma RECYCLED PET PEN: robust, durable and attractive. With this effective form of ‚upcycling‘, the writing implement specialist from the Black Forest has not only demonstrated its innovative powers convincingly. It has also set an example in sustainability that others would do well to emulate. For this, uma was presented with the Sustainability Award 2017 in the category of Sustainable Writing Instruments.

Nominated for the German Sustainability Prize

The German Sustainability Prize [Deutsche Nachhaltigkeitspreis] (DNP) is the most coveted and the best known award in the plethora of prizes awarded in Germany for environmental credentials, CSR and sustainability. Over the last 10 years, the DNP has developed into the greatest form of recognition for sustainable action in Europe. For this reason, we are proud to have been nominated this year.

After the assessment process, the PET-PEN uma model was nominated by the Collaborating Centre on Sustainable Consumption and Production (CSCP), specifically by the jury of the German Sustainability Prize (DNP) as part of the consumer voting process conducted by the REWE Group for this, the 11th German Sustainability Prize ('Germany's most sustainable products).

After its success in garnering the PSI Sustainability Award 2017 in the category 'Sustainable Writing Instruments', a jury of specialists was convinced by the upcycling idea behind the uma PET-PEN.
