SUSTAINABILITY

The environment we all love to enjoy is just SO important to us, any negative impact we have on this delicate system as a manufacturing company hurts everyone. Therefore we are alway researching and adopting better ways of doing things and making things. It’s not always easy, especially being a startup with no leverage in the industry, but we’re trying our best… 

WEBSITE

Having a website on the internet can be hugely damaging to the environment. Keeping servers up and running, as well as database and image storage require huge amounts of electricity and 40% of this energy goes to just keeping these machines cool ( some more information here ).

The LOFI webserver is running on 300% renewable energy, meaning for every KW used, we’re putting another 2KW of green energy into the grid!!

Green Energy

ENERGY

The LOFI workshop in Bristol is where the final product assembly takes place, and some of the simpler manufacturing processes also happen here. We will soon be running all this on 100% renewable energy (we’re just waiting for the landlord to finalise the shift for us!). Once our supply stream is finalised for overseas work, we will focus on pushing these to renewable energy too.

UPCYCLING

We will fully disassemble and recycle any returned products into their component parts for material recycling. Full disassembly and recycling instructions will be drawn up for you to download once the products are available for purchace.

PRODUCT MATERIALS

This is a tough one!

Our longterm goals are to use recycled metals, aluminium and titanium etc.  However, we’re finding this really difficult being a small startup. Even getting factories to make something for us in the small quantities that we’re producing is difficult! But we will work on this…  watch this space.

PACKAGING

We’re re-using the same packaging that the parts are shipped to us from any overseas factories.  We’ve asked that any packaging used is made from recycled board and the bags are biodegradable.
