Our responsibility to the environment reaches every part of the supply chain involved in the design, manufacture and distribution of Lockabox products.
Our policy and philosophy is one of continuous improvement and we are engaged in researching and sourcing new sustainable materials for our products. We very excited by the progress being made in bio plastics and aim to be at the forefront of change once the technology catches-up with the requirements of a food-safe product.
Currently our Lockaboxes are made from a tough food grade Polycarbonate which is 100% recyclable and and provides an excellent yield for plastic recycling facilities. The usual process for recycling polycarbonate is to sort, shred, wash, granulate and then compound ready for re-use.
We are however as far from a single-use plastic as we could hope to be, and we aim for your Lockabox to travel with you from home through university and then into your own home or workplace. Our boxes are infinitely versatile and designed to last.
If for any reason your product has reached the end of its usable life and you are in any doubt about how to recycle, please do contact us.
