It is great to bring packaging into the everyday lives of consumers, which will help save the environment and make the circular economy more efficient. Choosing Woodly® packaging material sends a strong message to consumers about Vihreäkeiju’s pioneering spirit and responsibility.” says Kyröntarhat Oy’s CEO Tomi Levonen.

“It is great to be able to work with Vihreäkeiju to make Woodly® packaging available to consumers.
