Our first step towards a more sustainable and ecological product line.

We’ve planted the seeds

We at Ultimate Guard have carefully considered our ecological responsibilities. Our commitment to protecting the environment includes the use of new materials and the creation of new products with an additional focus on sustainability. We have now woven this commitment to sustainability into our DNA.

FSC certified grass paper packaging

Made from 97% renewable resources

Made in Germany

We are introducing our Return to Earth series with one of our best-selling products. Our handy, solid RTE Boulder 100+ is developed and produced in Germany, consists of 97% renewable resources and comes with FSC certified grass paper packaging.

Boulder 100+

The deck case is recyclable and holds up to 100 double-sleeved or 120 single-sleeved cards when using Ultimate Guard Sleeves.

97% fully renewable resources

Having considered our ecological responsibilities, we have sourced a material which is both high quality and sustainable. The RTE Boulder 100+ consists of 97% fully renewable resources, is recyclable and produced completely with green energy. There are no animal-based materials, plasticizers or melamine used in its manufacture.

Made in Germany

The main materials used come from forests in Bavaria and the Black Forest, with everything from planning to production made in Germany. We are establishing a sustainable supply-chain and production process by keeping things local.

One Tree Planted

With the purchase of this product, you directly support global reforestation. Together with OneTreePlanted we are planting 10 trees a day, starting with the market entry of the first Return to Earth product, the RTE Boulder 100+.

What’s coming next?

The Return to Earth series is our first step towards sustainable production and we are working actively on expanding this series in the near future as well as improving our operations in general. We are aware that becoming fully sustainable is a long road, which we are confidently committed to taking.

Environmentally-conscious production is a topic we consider carefully daily, and we are actively promoting this in a number of ways, for example, by demanding a fair work environment at our partner facilities, as well as by building a new Campus with a green heart to significantly reduce our carbon footprint.

But there is more to come!
