We care about sustainability to the point where we depend on the Earth: We have a new garden that we are putting in this spring, we eat fruits and vegetables every day, and go on walks daily to enjoy the atmosphere and take in the scenery. When it snows, we encourage taking part in the sport.
The majority of our products are made from eco-friendly/recycled or organic materials, while also offering traditional products. We aim for the majority of our products to be from recycled products so we can create something new with materials that were already produced. This allows for the elimination of waste and for a safer environment for the animals. Tektonik has a lifetime warranty on its products. It is our goal to keep products out of the landfill. We also offer a send back program, where we will pay the shipping on any Tektonik merchandise you no longer want so it can be sent back to us for someone else to use. This is an eco-friendly alternative to throwing away your Tektonik merchandise and it will also keep products out of landfills.
Here at Tektonik we strive for helping the Earth. We reuse packing materials and boxes, shut off and unplug machines when they are not in use, and reuse materials to create new ideas. We believe in charity work and coming up with ideas for local community service opportunities. Tektonik employees believe in contributing to the local community.
We have a number of goals in mind:
First, we want to start composting to reduce the amount of waste going into our trash. By doing so, we can cut emissions the garbage companies use to process the trash by the elimination on food. Additionally, we will save on plastic bags over time, reducing the amount of plastic in the landfills.
When we buy machines to produce snowboards and merchandise, we want to purchase machines that are conscious about how much emissions will be used.
We will not be using plastic bags. Instead, when people come to our shop, we will use paper bags and eco-friendly tote bags will be available for purchase. We aim to reduce the amount of plastic being used on our planet. And of course, customers can choose to not use a bag at all, or bring their own.
By 2021, we will be getting into green packaging.
