We think about the future
All eco-packaging can play its own small part in improving the future of our planet. As a leading Czech supplier of packaging materials, sustainability is a matter that is remarkably close to us. That's why we help our customers achieve the strategy of reducing the environmental footprint.
Conservation makes sense for our society and we support this in our decision to distribute eco-friendly, recyclable, or compostable packaging. Sustainability means making the right decisions again and again and raising awareness.
We educate our employees in the sphere of ecology and we like to share our experience with customers so that end consumers can find the path to a zero-waste life as easily as possible. The idea of sustainability is not a final state, but a continuous process of improvement. We at Dekos are actively involved in this process through what we can best influence and understand - our portfolio of eco-friendly packaging.
Real ECO cups
Introducing these unique disposable paper cups with special water-based surface treatment. The reason for placing this product on the market was our vision of achieving 100% recyclability and the possibility of industrial composting. We are proud that Dekos has become an exclusive supplier of these truly environmentally-friendly cups. visit our online shop
The inside of regular disposable paper cups is treated with plastic lamination that prevents the drink from leaking. The downside of this sort of packaging is the fact that it cannot be recycled without first separating the two materials. Water-based coating is an alternative to lamination and is considerate to the environment, because cups treated in this way can be reprocessed – they are sorted as ordinary paper.
Our eco-cups are made of 100% industrially compostable material, meaning they can be processed with other food or drink waste. Emphasising the degradability of the cups made sense to us: after all, we also offer a comprehensive solution for organic waste recycling - the Greengood zero waste concept.
Products from rPET material
rPET material (polyethylene terephthalate with an admixture of recycled material) is produced by recycling PET plastic, which is then returned to produced packaging materials as an admixture. The production of plastic packaging itself is not easy to bring to an end, but at least the share of production of new plastic is decreasing thanks to rPET. The circular economy makes sense in this case because it responds to ecological requirements and modern trends in the consumer behaviour of end-users.
The process of producing rPET material
Used packaging material (PET bottles and other containers) is collected and transported.
Used plastic containers are cleaned in accordance with hygiene standards.
The material is ground and shaped into granules or flakes in food-grade quality.

New plastic packaging is made using the granules or flakes.
Packaging made entirely of renewable sources.
This packaging, which we refer to as compostable, has undergone testing in accordance with EN 13432 and has been certified in accordance with that standard.
It is biodegradable under the conditions of industrial composting.

It is non-toxic and has no negative impact on the resulting compost and soil.
Zero waste concept - solutions for compostable packaging
Zero waste means life without waste, and Greengood composters play their own role in this concept by using organic waste, used biodegradable packaging included. When properly processed, this packaging burdens the environment to a minimum and is beneficial for the soil in its final form of compost. visit our online shop
Greengood composters are used in the closed loop of circulation of food, in which residual organic waste is processed and returned to nature. Packaging, animal and vegetable materials are crushed and then composted.
The Greengood device reduces organic waste by up to 90% within 24 hours, which helps optimise the costs of its sorting and subsequent transport to the landfill. The ingenious process of recycling described above therefore has a positive economic aspect alongside its environmental importance.
