Environmental Practices

As a company, BioFit endeavors to continuously reduce any negative environmental impact created by our production processes. Although our research has revealed there is little available in terms of recycled component materials for the type of furniture we make we continue to look diligently. Meanwhile, there are other ways we reduce our impact:

Recycling stations are used in our factory and offices for cardboard, paper and aluminum.

BioFit employs the most "environmentally friendly" production processes available, including nontoxic powder coating as opposed to traditional painting of products. Happily, powder coating also provides a much tougher coating than traditional painting. There are no hazardous materials  used in our manufacturing processes, or contained in our final products.

Material Content That Can Be Recycled By The Customer

Depending on location and local recycling availability the following materials may be recycled, the percentage of each material varies with product line and model.

Steel:
Contained in chair bases, backbars, seat controls, table and booktruck frames
Plastic:
Chair backrest panels
Cardboard:
Product cartoning - all products
Aluminum:
Some chair models have aluminum chair bases appropriate for recycling
Wood:
The internal seat and back pans of upholstered models are plywood, which can be recycled in some locations
