Design for Zero
At SPACE/CRAFT we take more than quality and craftsmanship into consideration.
We have recycling programs for stainless steel, brass, steel, eligible plastics and paper products. When recycling is not available we offer other solutions to avoid the landfill. We also carefully select materials to use the most environmentally friendly products when possible.
We evaluate in real-time the benefits and costs of a wide variety of production solutions before we start the manufacturing process.
We offer greener solutions that fit within our client's creative strategy to start the process off on the best path.
Many of our client's have updated their guidelines to work with more eco-friendly materials and processes. Team work is the path to a more sustainable future.
Our team weaves in green decision-making while developing the engineering solutions.
This can be as simple integrating more recyclable materials or engineering a complex custom piece to be disassembled and re-used for many more campaigns.
Our vertically integrated manufacturing processes allows us to make better decisions for our green initiatives.
We have 100% water-based materials available and have sourced green options for all of our most heavily used
