MIIEGO AND THE ENVIRONMENT
At MIIEGO we strive to run our business in a responsible manner and with consideration for our surroundings and the environment.
Firstly, this is shown in our decision to make functional, robust, durable, and high-quality products. All our products must be able to endure being worn on a daily basis and are made to spread positive energy and joy over a long period of time. This is all a part of our DNA and a part of what has driven us forward from the very beginning.
When developing our products, we will never stop the quest to refine and better them. Cause we believe that even small details or small changes can make a big difference. The same can be said about MIIEGOs approach to the environment. We can’t do it all at once, but we can all do a little. And with these small, efficient steps we hope to make our contribution towards a more sustainable evolution.
Our primary focus is on products and materials, where we strive towards reducing our footprint on both the climate and the environment. We do this, because we see this as one of the areas, in which we can make the greatest difference.
We especially focus on reducing plastic and at the same time including more environmentally friendly materials, when possible, without it having an impact on the functionality or quality of our products.
We are far from done yet, but we have however taken the first important steps.
So far, we have achieved the following:
- Plastic free and recyclable packaging
The first step we took towards minimizing our environmental footprint was to phase out the usage of plastic in our packaging. In 2021 we reached a big milestone, when we accomplished making all our packaging out of a plastic free, recyclable material. Something we still do today.
- Supporting responsible disposal
Since 2020 MIIEGO has been a member of the non-profit organization Dansk EL-retur and have supported their mission to collect and handle used electronics, to ensure its disposal in an environmentally responsible way.
- RE:DUCE by MIIEGO – new product line with less plastic
In the beginning of 2022 we launched RE:DUCE by MIIEGO on the business-to-business market. A new line of products where the amount of plastic is reduced and partially replaced by wheat straw fibers – a natural by-product which occurs in the production of wheat. The products will be ready for purchase on our own website later this year. See the product line at the bottom of this page.
- Support of WWFs work towards plastic free nature
MIIEGO is a WWF business sponsor and for every MIIEGO RE:DUCE product sold, we donate 3 DKK to WWF in support of their important work towards creating plastic free nature.
Product life must be prolonged and used to the fullest
MIIEGO products are designed with functionality and durability in mind. This is – amongst other things – seen through the fact that the majority of our speakers and headphones can withstand water, sweat and dust to various degrees. Besides this, the ear cushions on most of our MIIEGO headphones are interchangeable and several of these can even be washed. Meaning you don’t have to dispose of your headphones and buy new ones simply because the ear cushions have been worn out.
All these details help ensure that the products can be used to their fullest and that their lifespan can be prolonged.
RE:DUCE BY MIIEGO
Less plastic, reduced environmental footprint
RE:DUCE by MIIEGO is a series of innovative products where the amount of plastic is reduced and partially replaced by wheat straw fibers. A natural by-product in the production of wheat. The products all have a unique design and a special finish because of the wheat straw fibers.
The same applies to the charging cables, that come with the products. Here, up to 40% of the plastic is replaced by wheat straw fibers.
About wheat straw fibers – a natural by-product
Wheat straw fibers feel like plastic and last for a very long time. They are made from the remaining stems that are left over when harvesting wheat. The stems are made into a pulp, which is then used as a raw material in the creation of bioplastic. Wheat straws are a by-product, which often gets burned after the wheat is harvested – thereby emitting CO2. By using wheat straw instead of plastic, we both manage to reuse a by-product and reduce the usage of plastic. All of which benefits the environment.
We support WWF
For every MIIEGO RE:DUCE product sold we donate 3 DKK to WWF in support of their work towards making nature plastic free.
The products in our RE:DUCE line is currently only available through our B2B retailers. However, we are looking forward to launching the products in our own webshop, which we expect to do in the summer of 2022.
