Reduce, Reuse, Recycle to Preserve Environment
We want you to know you can feel good about purchasing a Foto.com product. We understand the need to improve the environment and we all share an equal responsibility to create a better world for the future. We have carefully evaluated our processes to produce the best possible environmental outcomes.
All our boxes are manufactured from 100% recyclable materials.
We recently developed a new range of boxes for storage and shipment that is inline with our environmental responsibilities.
Our new hard rigid shell box : These new hard rigid shell boxes are primarily intended to be REUSED. They are perfect for the storage of your products and they give all the protection you will ever need from dust and humidity. They are themselves made from recycled materials and we use the minimum of packaging in making up any photo order so there is no wasted energy in the transportation process.
Cardboard boxes : Our other products are delivered to you in cardboard boxes which are fully recyclable. You can further our process by recycling this packaging yourself. Cardboard is also ideal for composting as they break down as part of the ‘natural’ regeneration of waste material.
Raw materials :
In the center of our production process, all our waste is treated and recycled above and beyond EU directives. The raw materials used in our printing process are also directly recycled.
Wasted Material Processes :
Raw material waste
Recycled and reused
General waste :
WWe rigorously sort all waste and trash onsite into the different recyclable categories including
Plastic, Paper, Cardboard, Alimentary and Glass. This is an integrated element of our process control.
We are continuously increasing all our efforts to minimize the use of energy and to transform it into a renewable energy source.
Power Use Efficiency :
1.8, meaning that it needs
Green Datacenter (foto.com)
1.3, meaning that it just needs
Heat Recovery :
Our machines produce heat. This heavy source of energy is then recycled and reused in order to heat our laboratories in the winter production season.
Low Consumption Light :
We only use low energy light bulbs to light our offices and laboratories. This is an easy change that we encourage you to look into for your home or business.
