Eva-Last believes that green is the colour of the future, and that reducing carbon emissions is a social responsibility to be shared by all citizens of the world. That's why every stage of the production and distribution of Eva-tech composite is rooted in eco-consciousness. Here are just a few ways that Eva-Last makes Eva-tech composite a truly environmentally-friendly product.
Manufacturing Eva-tech in South Africa means eliminating thousands of kilometres, thousands of litres of petrol, thousands of kilos of coal and thousands of pollutants needed to import from abroad. Eva-Last also ensures that it partners with the greenest transport company in South Africa and sends out only full truck loads across the country, reducing the number of vehicles on the road and pollutants in the air.
Almost all Eva-tech packaging is designed to be reused. Just as Eva-tech composite reuses otherwise wasted raw materials, Eva-tech packaging can be reused throughout your home. Eva-tech packaging can be used in a number of different applications. For more ideas on how to live green by reusing your Eva-tech packaging, please refer to the Living Green Ideas.
Forty percent of Eva-tech composite decking comes directly from South African cool drink bottles. The high density polyethylene plastic used in these bottles creates the base of Eva-tech's durable composition. Plus, this innovative use of otherwise wasted materials reduce that need for South African landfills.
The other sixty percent of Eva-tech composite comes straight from South African sawmills – sawdust! Eva-Last partners with sawmills who mill timber only from sustainable forests to further promote green business strategies. Not only does Eva-tech reuse sawdust to create a high quality composite, but it also saves trees from becoming future decks by offering you a green alternative for your outdoor needs.
Eva-Last is the first South African composite company to utilize state of the art manufacturing technology to create a more energy efficient colour process. All Eva-tech products are available in a range of six colours. These colours are applied to Eva-tech in a unique short-strand colour dye, which requires substantially less electricity and energy to apply than typical longer-strand dyes. And the Eva-tech dye is guaranteed to hold its colour for decades to come!
Eva-Last helps save trees by creating a decking alternative made largely from reclaimed wood. However Eva-Last also sees its own offices as an opportunity to promote green procedures. Eva-Last administration is done almost exclusively via electronic technology in an effort to strictly limit the amount of paper necessary. Eva-Last also encourages you to think in paper-less terms by referring to soft copies of Eva-tech brochures, installation guides, etc. and only printing when absolutely necessary.
