Sanwa Supply Inc. thinks seriously about the global environment,
which is why we take the following initiatives in our product design and development.
1. Recycle Planning
We take special care to see that only recyclable materials are used in our products. We also design items that are not only easy to use, but also easy to recycle.
2. Classification Design
The materials and parts we use in the manufacture of our products are separated into various categories, simplifying the process of parts replacement.
3. Promoting the use of Recycled and Unused Materials
We limit our use of resources by making a conscientious effort to use materials such as recycled plastic, recycled timber, waste lumber and recycled paper in our products.
4. Promoting Environmentally Friendly Materials and Technology.
We use materials containing few formaldehydes, the major cause of sick-house syndrome, and other non-toxic materials. We also produced recycled toner cartridges and replacement ink refills.
5. Environmentally Friendly Packages
We don't just put effort into our products, but packages as well. We are currently in the process of ensuring all our packaging is made from environmentally friendly, recyclable materials.
6. After Sales Service
We offer quality after sales service through our on-line support, support center and sales offices located nationwide.
