About PROJECTKIN

PROJECTKIN create sustainable travel products that address the urgent need to reduce to environmental impact of traveling. PROJECTKIN was founded by a group of people, who had the common vision of rethinking product standards and the way people travel for the good of our planet. It’s a visionary project about moving away from consumption for the sake of consumption and creating things of true quality.

The brand name, PROJECTKIN, is combined by two words ‘Project’ and ‘Kin’. Project is a venture towards a common cause, and it requires the combined efforts of the many rather than one, while ‘KIN’ is a tribe of people united by that cause to promote mindful travelling in everything we do. It means taking small actions to be sustainable in daily life, whether you’re enjoying life at home or abroad.

Brand sustainability

PROJECTKIN advocate openness and transparency across all aspects of their business. They actively work with suppliers on clear sustainability guidelines such as their Code of Conduct and their Restricted Substance List based on the EU regulation REACH.

In the selection process, they pay special attention to water consumption, recycling, CO2 footprint, biodegradability, use of chemicals, and land use. The materials used for their products come from nature which means they look natural, feel natural and are natural. The products are also recognized by their raw and natural appearance and feeling.

In terms of materials, PROJECTKIN use natural hemp, flax, vegetable tanned lather, and biodegradable plastics. They work towards identifying new sustainable materials that can innovate and push the boundaries for what is possible.

Brand Ethos

Sustainability, Nordic Design and Quality are the main drivers behind PROJECTKIN. All products are tested at 3rd party facilities to ensure the longevity and durability of their products. Thus, they are a Born Sustainable brand constantly pushing the boundaries for how far they can go.

The Comarché Notes

PROJECTKIN’s uncompromising approach to the materials they use is what initially sparked our interest. Looking forward to seeing what’s next in line…

Sustainable highlights on brand level

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
