At The K3 Company®, we believe it is our responsibility to do business in a way that enriches our planet. To ensure this happens, we carry out a wide range of environmental activities across the globe. We are in relentless pursuit to deliver innovative eco-friendly products to consumers and are committed throughout the entire life cycle of our products.
Sustainable Product Initiatives
We are committed to eliminating waste and reducing resource use and cost by developing sustainable products in the most efficient and green way possible. This includes reducing product returns and the waste they create, both in additional logistic costs and energy costs. We are in the process of reducing our annual energy costs by implementing processes that make product development more energy-efficient. We source new raw materials responsibly and urge our suppliers do so as well.
The K3 Company believes in the importance of energy efficiency. Wherever possible, we incorporate energy-efficient elements across our product lines and regularly assess the effectiveness of those operations. We have begun evaluating every product from an energy efficiency perspective, starting with our consumer electronics products. We will continue to seek opportunities to increase the efficiency of our products, facilities and operations.
We are also very committed to not only providing consumers with environmentally responsible products, but also to making sure we have delivered our message of sustainability consciousness to every consumer.
This website will be one of the places where we update consumers on our continued efforts in environmental responsibility. We have also begun clearly marking our product packaging with the applicable recycling and energy-related information. Our Eco Friendly recycling logo encourages consumers to recycle. As we continue to engage eco-friendly innovations, we are updating every new and existing product with educational information regarding its environmental attributes.
Sustainable Packaging Initiatives
Sustainable packaging is the packaging of tomorrow, and a commitment we are engaging today. The K3 Company is continuing to minimizing plastic product packaging while ensuring the integrity and security of our products. We continue to review our packaging and compare it to industry best practice in an effort to make packaging reductions where possible.
What is Eco-Friendly Packaging?
Less plastic, more paper
PET A instead of PVC
100% complete separation of materials to promote recyclability
Maintain structural integrity with folds and tabs instead of glue and heat sealing
Reduced footprint saves space and materials without sacrificing shelf impact
Simple design and elimination of thermoformed plastic help save energy during production
Eco-friendly printing process without coating or varnishes simplifies recycling
Eco Packaging Success
We have achieved many packaging reduction successes to date including:
Saving nearly 25 tons of plastic waste from packaging re-designed initiatives
Reducing the amount of plastic used in packaging and increasing the amount of recycled paper
Redesigning packaging using minimum resources and incorporating blister packaging where applicable.
We believe that by creating positive change in sustainable packaging, The K3 Company can serve as an inspiration and leader to its customers and partners. By uncovering new ways to create sustainable products, we look forward to playing a responsible role in creating a greener future.
