TO CONSUME IS TO COMMIT
Fukushima, the 2015 attacks, Brexit… during these years, chaos dominates. In the background, the revolution is underway, and it is primarily digital. But the urgency is elsewhere: global warming is becoming a new political issue; environmental awareness is emerging among the population and many voices are being raised to encourage citizens to protect the planet.
Overwhelmed by so many serious and involving issues, the Consumer Actor was born: for him, buying and consuming are committed acts that must be in line with his values. It becomes as important to consider the quality of food, as its origin or its impact on health or the environment.
The same applies to packaging which, in addition to protecting, must also reduce its environmental impact, be committed, trendy and leave no doubt as to the need for its function in complete transparency. Even if this approach has been in its DNA since its creation, GUILLIN will go even further in its environmental commitments and will open new avenues.
