Beko uses recycled materials in latest appliance range

Beko has launched a series of appliances that feature parts made from recycled materials, including fishing nets, industrial thread waste and plastic bottles.

Recycled fishnets and industrial thread waste are used in the production of some parts of the brand’s RecycledNet ovens. By transforming waste into sustainable materials used in the door décor plastic, display cover and inner display cover, Beko has elevated its offering within the range.

A selection of RecycledNet appliances include Beko’s AeroPerfect technology, which distributes hot air evenly throughout the oven, delivering faster, more even cooking results. Select models also include automatic cleaning functions and ‘smart features’, meaning consumers can connect to the AeroPerfect Oven via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth using the Homewhiz App.

Up to 60 recycled 0.5L PET bottles were used in the production of the tubs of Beko’s RecycledTub Washing Machines and Washer Dryers. Select models from the range also feature AquaTech technology, which delivers washes that are up to 50 per cent faster yet 50 per cent more gentle, the company said.

A recent Europe-wide survey by Beko revealed that 85 per cent of consumers adopted at least one lifestyle change to be more sustainable in the last year, a subject at the forefront of many minds; the results also found that when asked what they could do to protect the planet, the top choice for all respondents was to purchase sustainable products.

Vijay Bhardwaj, Marketing Director at Beko UK and Ireland, said that healthy living is only possible on a healthy planet.

“As our survey has shown, an increased proportion of us are taking steps to ensure we are more sustainable. We believe making more sustainable appliance choices should be more accessible, which is why we’re continually working to make our portfolio more environmentally friendly, whilst still pocket friendly. This further solidifies our position as an industry pioneer in sustainability and developing products that tackle the challenges facing our planet today, protecting the environment for future generations.”
