A long history of recycling
Blum has a long history of efforts to minimize its impact on the environment, reduce waste and recycle as many materials as possible. Measures taken to truly protect the environment have proven beneficial in the long term, not only in lessening the environmental impact but also in improved efficiencies.
One of our ongoing efforts is to reuse materials wherever possible. We mix recycled material with virgin raw material in many of our production processes. Amounts vary depending on the effects of recycled material on strength and color. All zinc and nylon components are produced virtually waste-free in closed cycle processes, therefore there is almost no waste in the production of these items.
