Caring about our environment is crucial for all of us, yet even more so for the next generation. Actions today are required to safeguard our planet's ecosystems. At POGS, we continue to want to reduce our negative impact while creating positive impact as well with the POGS forest.

Choosing lower impact materials

We put a lot of effort into ensuring that we reuse or recycle as much as possible, and our a continuing journey to do better. Our headphones are now made with 55% recycled materials, made up of recycled plastics and recycled packaging. The recycled plastics we use, are TüV-certified post-consumer recycled plastics. All our packaging is 100% recycled: we've saved thousands of kilos of virgin packaging materials. And we do not use any single-use plastics anywhere.

We found the best source for our travel pouches to be 100% Fairtrade organic cotton which is GOTS certified.

While we are proud of the steps we have taken so far, we continue to work on ways to increase the recycled content in our products.

Planting a POGS forest

We have set an ambitious goal: to plant 100.000 trees by 2030.

Why trees? Trees purify our water, capture CO2, and produce oxygen. Trees also provide shelter for animals and protect the soil.

POGS invests 10% of our profits in well-established organizations, like Tree-Nation, and Landlife. We carefully select projects that ensure that the right trees are planted in the right areas, and that they can grow for decades. Since 2020, we have started planting thousands of trees in Argentina, Mexico, USA, France, and the UK. We still have a long way to go, but we believe we can make it – with your support!

Loving animals

You may have noticed that POGS loves animals, we even named our products after a few: The Turtle, The Gecko, The Elephant, The Kangaroo and The Wallaby. So, it should come as no surprise that all our products are completely cruelty-free!

No animal products are used in our production or our products. That means that no components, like glues, or processing aids in production, like oils, are of animal origin.

Manufacturing without waste

We are very efficient in how we produce our headphones. We make sure that we use or recycle all materials during production.

As a result, zero waste from POGS manufacturing goes to landfill or incineration. We recycle at the office and our homes as well!
