Recycled Keys 2022
“The Shredder”, based in Sri Lanka, takes scrap generated during plastic moulding, shreds it and extracts long thin threads. The threads are chopped into pellets that are ready to be formed into non-critical components.
We’ve perfected the process for using the pellets in manufacturing and we’re very excited to announce that all our keys are now 100% recycled – reducing waste in the factory and our impact on the environment.
