NEW ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING FOR OUR DISPLAY SYSTEMS RANGE: NO MORE PLASTIC BAGS
3.27 t of CO² equivalent a year.
That is the yearly reduction of our environmental impact
corresponding to the use of our new eco-friendly packaging:
we no longer use plastic bags in our packaging, we’ve optimized the use of paper insert sheets and added a sticker to symbolize the authenticity and expertise of Tarifold.
POCKET RECYCLING: TARIFOLD OFFERS TO RECYCLE ITS CUSTOMERS’ POCKETS
Tarifold now recycles its pockets! Return your old pockets now!
We now offer to prevent end-users from throwing away their used pockets. Any used pockets, intended for waste can be returned to Tarifold on the condition of meeting the return criteria. Tarifold will take care of recycling the pockets at its own cost.

RECYCLING IN TARIFOLD
We collect and sort our production waste material. Compactors are used for packaging waste.
Recycling is promoted by the establishment of permanent terminals for the collection of corks, batteries, clothing, etc. The analysis of the recycling potential of each product is carried out and sent to customers.
REDUCING ENERGY CONSUMPTION
We continuously reduce our energy consumption and develop products with a lower environmental impact.
Product development focuses on eco-conception in the very early stages of development.
Tarifold sponsors a French NGO called “The SeaCleaners” to fight against plastic pollution in our oceans. We co-finance the “Manta” Project, which is a cleaning boat, scientific laboratory, educational tool and lever of the circular economy.
The “Manta” is the first seagoing vessel capable of collecting and processing (in continuous flow) large quantities of macro plastic waste floating at the surface of the ocean. The design focuses on many innovative technologies in the field of renewable energy production enabling it to minimize its global carbon footprint whilemaximizing its energy self-sufficiency. The Manta also has an optimized maneuverability and large scope which not only allow it to rapidly reach the most polluted areas (many along the coast, in estuaries and in the mouths of the 10 largest rivers where 90% of the ocean’s plastic pollution comes from) but also in areas polluted by a recent weather or natural disaster.
We donate 0,02€ per 10 pockets sold.
