SUSTAINABILITY AT LE SKYEBLEU: MATERIALS & PROCESSES
We give due consideration to the care of your products and our environment.
Therefore, LE SKYEBLEU is a cruelty free and planet friendly business from the beginning. We love animals and our environment, so we are ethical and mindful while choosing the right and the highest quality materials for our products.
Moreover, sustainability is an integral part of our Research & Development process, materials procurement including selection of production partners who share a similar vision as ours.
All our product materials, manufacturing processes, including finished products are audited by and certified as compliant in accordance with international industry standards by one of the leading global technical audit firms.
At every stage of the journey, we place the greatest emphasis on minimising our carbon footprint.
Polycarbonate (PC) – Polycarbonate is used for our Snap & Tough cases. We prefer this material over other plastics because of its strength and durability characteristics.
Thermoplastic Polyurethanes (TPU) – A 100% recyclable TPU is used for the inner layer of our Tough cases. TPU has excellent mechanical properties, combined with a rubber-like elasticity and is a great replacement for hard rubber. We prefer this material over other non-recyclable rubber & plastics because our TPU material is 100% recyclable and more eco-friendly, extremely flexible, smooth to the touch and has greater durability than other conventional silicone/plastics.
Faux Vegan Leather – We use 100% High quality, premium vegan leather for our Apple Watchbands & Laptop/ Tablet Sleeves to give you a product that will last. In scientific terms, it is made up of recycled PVB (Polyvinyl Butryal). Furthermore, we have fully eliminated the use of PVC in our faux leather, and it complies with PVC free policy and eco regulations. We choose this sustainable material over the conventional leather because it is 100% vegan, made up of planet friendly & animal free materials, has anti-scratch & anti-abrasion qualities and is super modern & durable.
Bio Flexi – For our Biodegradable phone cases, we use Bio Flexi material which is 100% compostable (Eco- friendly) and made up of PLA (Polyactide), PBAT (polybutylene adipate-co-terephthalate)& Bamboo Fiber. It is approved and certified as compliant by SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection, and certification organization. We choose this material over other plastics because it is 100% eco-friendly, has shock absorbing & scratch resistant qualities and is very durable.
Paper Leather – We use a 100% sustainable paper leather for Laptop Skins, Phone case wallets, Charging Adapter skins and Cable/ Cord wraps. Made from tree pulp, it’s a combination of paper with cotton fabric to give it the structure. This was developed to replace animal skin leather and fossil fuel based faux (PU) leather as we continue to implement sustainable business strategies and facilitate the need for more eco-friendly materials. We consciously choose this material because it is 100% Biodegradable, lightweight, has water resistant and anti-bacterial properties and is made from plant-based polymers. These qualities make it a perfect eco-friendly replacement for the traditional animal and synthetic leathers. It is also approved and certified as compliant by Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance Provider to industries worldwide.
Since the beginning, we are committed in bringing you the amazing quality of the print colours, excellent durability of our 3D decorated products and of course, our customer service.
