The GMAN Nature is a universal toothed (U7) 22”-550 mm hand saw with bio-composite handle.
The handle is made from almost 100% bio-based materials (wood fibres and bio-based plastic). Despite the fact it contains natural fibres, it has the same properties as polystyrene which is a fossil-based material.
By using the bio-composites the company has reduced the carbon footprint by 65% compared to products with polystyrene handles.
The wood fibres in the bio-composite material comes from sustainable forest industries and are certified.
Another advantage is that the bio-composite material is much easier to recycle than polystyrene and of course it complies with the requirements of REACH.
