REDUCE, REUSE, REAL NUMBERS AND NOT RHETORIC

Our wood products are manufactured from 100% recycled and/or recovered fiber. 100% of our wood products originate from certified sustainable harvesting methods. Up to 90% of our packaging and steel comes from post-consumer waste or recycled materials. In the places that we must use packaging materials, they are 100% recyclable. Our investment in machinery and new processes has reduced waste by more than 60% in the past 3 years. 100% of all unused metal from the manufacturing of our product is recycled locally. Computer Comforts’ Arlington, TX-based manufacturing facility uses powder coat paint, which means you can be assured that no solvents and negligible amounts of VOC’s, if any, are being released into our atmosphere.
