Today we are proud to inform that we are also WEEE certified.
WHAT WEEE CERTIFIED MEANS?
For those who are not familiar with the nomenclature (terminology) WEEE stands for Waste Electrical & Environmental Equipment.
In general most products that are operated by batteries or plugs are considered WEEE.
Being WEEE Certified means that the product is produced according to the WEEED (Directive).
That said, Orphek follows all the WEEED and most of all, carefully chooses materials that have a high recycling ratio.
WHY ORPHEK FINDS THIS IMPORTANT?
When these electrical items reach their end of life they are defined as Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). Many of the electronic goods may contain hazardous materials like heavy metals or batteries. These materials can cause serious environmental damage and can dangerous to human health if they are not disposed correctly and reclycled.
Over time the electrical waste will decay and may leak toxins into the earth and our water systems and finally into the Oceans and seas harming not only the living creatures in it, but also us.
