Why the viking ?
Mak the viking is our logo because of our family connection to Sweden which has become a second home. The way Sweden connects with the environment is something we try to instil in our business model. Swedes keep life simple, packaging is cheaper and environmentally friendlier when its kept simple. No need to complicate a product when it will inevitably be recycled. Sustainability presumes all resources are finite and therefore should be used conservatively. Choosing packaging that doesn’t create excessive waste can be a step towards sustainability. Removing plastic packaging completely may not be the answer as full dependence on cardboard creates huge pressure on our forests. A reduction in waste and choosing a packaging solution that can easily be recycled or used again can significantly reduce your carbon footprint and put less pressure on our precious ecosystems.
There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes.
A popular Swedish saying which we strongly believe in, it’s all about adapting to the environment and getting on with it.
