Sustainability Throughout


Environmental responsibility is more than just providing a product with recycled content or one that can be recycled. It’s more than just making a claim about being green and putting a label on it. It’s about preserving our natural resources through recovery, reuse and recycling. It’s about finding innovative ways to protect finite resources with greater efficiency while still offering a premium choice. Zeftron understands this and is committed to sustainability every day and in everything we do.
