All Bien Fait objects are made with safe materials. We offer natural, biodegradable, or recyclable objects that reflect our commitment to a better environment.
Who created Bien Fait?
Bien Fait was born with the idea of saving the planet! Creator Lorraine Bonduelle graduated with masters degrees in both photography and sustainable development from prestigious French universities. In daily life, Lorraine is committed to reducing her carbon footprint. Bien Fait is her dream shop: useful, beautiful, long-lasting, sustainable objects developed with the traditional know- how of craftsmen. With Bien Fait, Lorraine proposes an ecological and economical lifestyle, so that the Earth can keep spinning and we can all enjoy it!
Why is it "bien fait" (well done)?
Bien Fait objects are precisely curated! The criteria is to be beautiful, useful, (very) long-lasting AND as sustainable as possible: Objects have a minimum environmental footprint and help contribute to a better world. We pay attention to materials, techniques, territories, water and energy consumption, carbon emissions, waste produced or avoided etc. As for packaging and shipping materials, all of the materials are reused, mostly from our suppliers.
Are all products manufactured in France?
Bien Fait objects come from France and other countries, the only criteria being quality and the respect of people and the planet.
Where do the products come from?
France, Switzerland, Germany, UK and Austria mainly. Two products come from the United States (the glass straw and the food wrap), and two others come from China! "China? What?!?" Yes, one of them, the konjac sponge is made of konjac root, a plant that grows there. The other one is the reusable ear cleaner: it is made of bamboo that also grows there. These two products are manufactured in factories that have been visited by our supplier Lamazuna that we fully trust as long as social and environmental protection are concerned.
