At the "Cube" office location at Berlin's main railway station, Deutsche Bahn has set up 150 sustainable workplaces on 3,000 square metres of office space: The equipment - from the carpet to the furniture - consists mainly of recycled materials. Even the Drumback workplace chairs by Viasit - which have already won the Green Product Award - were sustainably upholstered with the fabric "Oceanic", which is made of 100% recycled polyester and bears the "Ökotex 100" seal.
Oceanic is made entirely from recycled plastic waste from end consumers (post-consumer plastic) - from waste floating in the sea to disposed bottles that do not end up in landfill this way.
