R5® Living is a brand of The OKAPI NETWORK® srl Società Benefit, an innovative start-up MADE IN ITALY, founded in Bergamo to develop low-impact personal and home care products. From the earliest stages of our development, we took on the legal form of a Benefit Company, in order to pursue not only business objectives, but also aims of common benefit by operating responsibly, sustainably and transparently towards people, communities, territories and the environment.
The philosophy is in our logo: rethink, refill, reuse, reduce, relax. Our manifesto is encapsulated in these five words. We rethink the way we produce and consume, with a view to the highest quality and a strong focus on the environment. We eliminate unnecessary and disposable packaging, reduce water and plastic consumption and promote a new life for products. And for this we deserve a little relaxation. Top quality is a must for us, format and consumption as well.
We measure the environmental footprint of our products through LCA (Life Cycle Screening) to compare the environmental impacts to conventional products.
Every R5 product is PLASTIC NEGATIVE certified with RePurpose Global: we are among the first companies in the world and the first in Italy to more than offset our plastic footprint. Achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda must move every company. We are working towards SDG 12 responsible consumption and production, SDG 14 life under water and we will tackle SDG 6 clean water and sanitation. Five per cent of our turnover goes to social and reforestation projects.
