COPENHAGEN FOREVER PRODUCTS

Imagine if the products that surround us could speak. Then we would know their story; the origin of the materials; understand how the different components were produced; where it was mounted and we would know all the people who had been involved in the process.

Perhaps many of us prefer not to know the story, because we know that most products will tell a story about limited raw material, exploitation of cheap labor for production, transportation back and forth across the planet and pollution.
Deep down inside we even know that when we no longer want the product, there is no “happy ending” to the story; just more filling to mountains of waste.

What if the story was different?

The products from Copenhagen Forever tell a different story.

They tell about recycled and biodegradable materials that have been made into products through a social responsible and environmentally friendly production. And there simply is no ending, because the ending is always part of a new beginning, - either recycled as material for new products or biological degraded as part of nature’s own cycle.

Thank you to the funds, organisations and private companies who support Copenhagen financially and also in many cases with indispensable knowledge.
