Recycled plastic? Presenting Tucano’s new cases for iPads and tablets!

Our new iPad and tablet cases, made with materials produced from recycled plastic, mark the company’s ambitious sustainability goal for 2021 and the beginning of an ecological challenge yet to be met.

Oceans polluted by enormous islands of plastic, melting glaciers, the greenhouse effect – these are just a few of the serious environmental problems that we’re getting used to living with. Protecting the planet is not only a necessity but our common duty.


In recent years, Tucano has given a great deal of attention to the theme of eco-sustainability, experimenting, using materials made from recycled plastic, and looking at new, eco-sustainable production models. Today, the relationship between our product lines made with recycled plastic materials and those in traditional materials is inverted. There is now a clear prevalence of the former and our goal is to make the entire 2022 catalogue eco-sustainable.

The brand new Metal for iPad mini 6th gen, the Link for iPad Pro 11″ and iPad Pro 12,9″, the Premio for iPad Pro 11” 2021 and the Gala for Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite are the first tablet covers made of materials produced from recycled plastic, each one of these covers keeps about 3 bottles from going to the landfill.


Of course, in view of this extraordinary change, not only have our standard collections been reinterpreted in a “green style” but interesting new product families have been conceived for both the Consumer Electronics channel as well as for the travel and leisure sector. In addition to bags and backpacks, Second Skin®, the iconic sleeve for laptops and MacBooks, will also follow the same production criteria, as we work towards large-scale transformation and significant levels of plastic bottle recycling: up to 12 for bags, 24 for foldable products, and 30 for larger backpacks.


But how can plastic be given a second life? Once collected, the used plastic bottles are ground up into small pieces, melted, and then transformed into thread. Eco-nylon, and eco-polyester, mesh, and coated or stretchy fabrics are just some of the solutions available in recycled material.


Tucano packaging is also zero impact – in particular the paper tag on the products, the polybags in compostable bio-plastic, the recycled and recyclable cardboard boxes for e-commerce – a choice consistent with our commitment to this goal.

Tucano Cosmoprof 2019

Tucano Cosmoprof 2019

The leitmotif of Cosmoprof 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for the cosmetics and beauty industry, is sustainability. This topic is also very important to Tucano, attending the 52nd Edition of the Bologna-based fair, scheduled from March 14–18, with a project that represents the company’s “green philosophy” and with a stand focused on the environment and innovative solutions, which are useful for keeping it in balance.

In an environment largely dedicated to green cosmetics, Tucano is presenting a new sustainable material, used to make two backpacks, which are additions to already well-known collections. This material can be also be used for any bag, pouch or beauty organizer in order to satisfy the sophisticated needs of the cosmetics industry. A material obtained from recycled plastics, treated and reprocessed so that it can be used a second time, an important quality in today’s environment where waste is no longer acceptable.
Two collections featured in our 2019 catalogue express the concept of innovation and eco-sustainable design: our Ecocompact and Ecolive backpacks. Two innovative products in sophisticated colors, manufactured with 100% recycled materials made from PET bottles.

Ma lo stand Tucano offre anche una proposta ampia e strutturata, colorata e dal design contemporaneo, fatta di borse, zaini e custodie multiuso, pensati per il beauty e per il viaggio.
