Toybe cares for the environment

Toybe cuida el medio ambiente

Taking care of nature is a principle, not an option. We work in an industry in which raw materials must be ecological, polluting processes had to be minimized, and logistics should be very efficient to avoid unnecessary consumption and contamination.

Toybe Global Packaging strives to minimize our impact on the environment, as an ISO 14001 accredited. We manage waste responsibly, reusing materials until the end of their useful life, and recycling by-products.

We use paper from sustainable and responsibly managed forests. That’s why we have the PEFC and FSC Chain of Custody certifications.

Every Toybe’s production process is designed to emit the lower pollution as possible:

    • We select papers from sustainable forests, both virgin and recycled.
    • If possible, we use water-based inks and varnishes, as well as solvent-free adhesives.
    • Leftover inks from printing are recovered for their reuse, reducing waste.
    • Our washing and distillation equipment allows us to reduce ink waste; and recover a high percentage of the solvent used in the processes.
    • Only essential chemicals are used to avoid any unnecessary contamination.
    • We advise our customers to try to reduce the thickness of their packaging as much as possible, in order to reduce waste after using it.
    • Toybe selects paper, inks and other raw materials’ suppliers taking count of their proximity to reduce our products’ carbon footprint.
    • We reuse wooden pallets and flexible packaging, through the return arranged with our customers.
    • Printing, manufacturing and logistics technicians receive ongoing training regarding environmental matters.
    • We use eco-friendly cleaning products, with the EU Ecolabel.
    • Our equipments are constantly renewed with all necessary innovations to decrease energy consumption.
    • Water treatments keep the discharges clean.
    • Our waste store is equipped with the necessary security measures to minimize risks of spills and falls.
    • Toybe eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOCs); so that our wastes emitted in the atmosphere are not harmful.
    • We minimize, classify and separate the waste produced in the processes for their reuse, recovery or destruction depending on their nature.
