At GIWA, sustainability is reusable

The easiest way to generate less plastic waste is to reuse it. That is why GIWA is relying more and more on recycled materials. With a share of up to 100 percent today, our products made of recycled plastic are ready for tomorrow.

“Sustainability is not merely a label for GIWA, but a guiding principle throughout the entire value chain. From the use of recycled plastics to resource-saving manufacturing processes.”

Daniel Sieberer,
Majority Owner & Managing Director, GIWA GmbH
