The amount of plastic marine litter in oceans and seas is growing, to the detriment of ecosystems, biodiversity and potentially human health, and causes widespread concern. At the same time, valuable material that could be brought back into the economy is lost, once littered. Single Use Plastic (SUP) items represent about half of all marine litter items found on European beaches by counts. (Reference: Proposal for a DIRECTIVE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on the reduction of the impact of certain plastic products on the environment, 28/05/1018)

Use of renewable energy

In a world of rising energy demands and environmental awareness, we cannot afford unnecessary waste. Electricity from renewable energy sources, often known as “green electricity”, is becoming more and more important in the market. HOSTI only uses electricity which is 100% certified as coming from renewable energy sources.


We use renewable raw materials for our products. We also constantly review our manufacturing processes to ensure quality, efficiency and respect for the environment.

The “Forest Stewardship Council” (FSC®) has set out strict criteria that serve to ensure that uncontrolled deforestation, violations of human rights and pollution of the environment are avoided. The “Nordic Swan Ecolabel” is the governmental sustainability label of the Nordic countries. The focus of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel is on environmental protection, as well as the quality and safety of the products.

In the production chain, HOSTI is a FSC®- and Nordic Swan Ecolabel certified company.
