Responsible consumption and production: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

Prevention, reduction, recycling, and reuse - our goal is to make the most use out of what we have and to be responsible about our consumption. The amount of plastic usage per a year is unimaginable, which is why recycled polyester (rPET) is a good solution to reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 70%, also utilizing recycled plastics significantly reduces the need for additional raw materials. Besides, umbrella production is another matter of concern when umbrellas are mass produced but with poor quality; up to 1 billion umbrellas per a year globally.

Life on land: Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss

Rent one, plant one

Dripdrop also focuses on the goal of Life on land; ensure that terrestrial ecosystems are protected, restored, and promoted, that forests are sustainably managed, that desertification is discouraged, and that land degradation is halted and reversed so that biodiversity is not lost. Together with the leading non-profit organization Eden Reforestation Project. Since August 2020, we started the project Rent One Plant One; with one umbrella rented, we plant one tree. As part of Eden's tree planting program, the company ensures that the trees are nurtured and that the projects are rooted in the local communities.

“The destruction of healthy forest systems causes so many different problems. Trees provide a habitat for animals, purify water sources, control flooding and erosion and help to replenish the soil with nutrients needed for farming. When farmers can’t grow anything their farms fail and they have no option but to move to the overcrowded cities looking for work. Often they have to resort to selling themselves or their families into slavery just to survive.”- Eden Reforestation Project
