By manufacturing and distributing reflective garment accessories for the fashion and workwear industry, with a focus on sportswear and youth, the Rudholm Group will add another life-saving functionality to its collection. Today's reflective material could be in a neutral white during daytime, becoming highly reflective during evening hours exposed to light, or in lively colors.
KNPO's reflective beads
We are a Non-Profit Organization and don't have the resources to maintain a sustainable product development of reflective beads. We would like to see Rudholm Group as our producing partner. We'd rather be out visiting schools, advocating for a better and safer environment for children, and finding more sponsors. Occasionally we have sponsors who want special reflective beads (in the form of their logotypes or brands) as giveaways to be produced.
Use of recycled and recyclable materials
KNPO have been talking to leading companies like H&M and sensed a strong demand for sustainable material and functionalities. By making the switch to bioplastics like PLA (Poly Lactic Acid) the Rudholm Group will be known as the leader in the field of environmentally responsible within the garment industry. Most garment are made from metal or polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a petroleum-based plastic, currently non-recyclable. The Rudholm Group could capitalize on such collaboration and eventually get a Certified Emission Reduction (CER) that can be traded later.
By partnering with KNPO, the Rudholm Group could create a global campaign in collaboration with leading fashion designers and sports brands, calling for action to save people’s lives on the roads and supporting the Global Road Safety Agenda of the United Nation and WHO.

Charitable contributions can qualify as tax deductions against US-based businesses’ annual tax liability. However, the IRS tax code is complex and we recommend you to talk to your financial department.
- Monetary contributions – Cash or other monetary contributions may be tax deductible as long as they are not set aside for use by a specific person. Generally, you can deduct up to 50% of your adjusted gross income, but 20% and 30% limitations may apply (refer to Limits on Deductions from the IRS).
- Donations of property, including business inventory – These are also considered a valid tax deduction. Donations are evaluated and deducted based on their fair market value (basically what a consumer would pay for these goods in an open market). Deductions are limited in most cases to 50% of your adjusted gross income.
