WE ALL DO OUR SHARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
As a company, we are aware of our responsibility towards society and the environment, and strive to do our utmost to develop our products in an environmentally friendly and fair manner.
We are still a long way from reaching our targets, but we make steady progress as we go along.
However, one thing was clear to us from the start - we don't want to have to deal with non-recyclable plastics under any circumstances!
This has been certified after our Eye-Prots underwent ASTM D 6866, an industry gold standard that uses radiocarbon analysis to determine the proportion of biological content in solid, liquids and gaseous substances.
What is a biopolymer?
Plastics consist of so-called polymers.
In short, polymers are chemical compounds.
Biopolymers are essentially polymers that are made from renewable raw materials and / or are biodegradable.
We also stress the importance of using plant-based raw materials from sustainable and ecologically balanced sources.
Last but not least, we have to ensure that the product has the required physical and mechanical properties, such as tensile strength, or color.
In a nutshell, we aim for the best possible combination of sustainability, product quality and price.
We are aware of how our work policies influence society around us; for example, in the packaging and assembly sectors we specifically engage suppliers who employ people with disabilities.
