Reuse of materials

Recycled items save precious resources. This pertains to items produced from recycled materials. Recycled items can be labeled as part of the sustainable bol assortment if the product is made from at least 50% recycled material.


To save precious resources and prevent waste, it is important that we reuse materials, thus transitioning towards a circular economy. Items in this category contain reused materials, such as items made from recycled materials.

If you want to label an item as more sustainable based on a characteristic (e.g., >50% recycled material) instead of a certification, we ask you to provide verification from the manufacturer of the item, proving the origin and percentage of the material.

  • REMOkey (minimaal 50% recycled materiaal)
  • Global Recycle Standard (minimaal 50% recycled materiaal)
  • Recycled Claim Standard (RCS)
  • Materiaal >50% Circulose
  • Materiaal >50% Repreve
  • FSC Recycled
  • PEFC Recycled
  • Het artikel dient voor minimaal 50% van gerecycled materiaal te zijn

We request verification from one of the specified sustainability labels or verification from the manufacturer of the item proving the origin and percentage of recycled material when no certification is available.

Recyclable items are excluded (since their sustainability is strongly influenced by consumer behavior and the existence of a return process).
