Sustainability

We are firmly committed to sustainability in the production of our vinyl records. We exclusively utilize an eco-friendly PVC based on zinc calcium, a choice that stands out as the most environmentally friendly option currently available on the market. This material not only ensures the highest quality of the end product but also reduces environmental impact, adhering to eco-compatibility principles. Our company philosophy is rooted in an almost entirely circular economy model. We actively strive to recycle every possible waste generated during the production process. This means that nothing is wasted, and every resource is used efficiently and responsibly, making a significant contribution to reducing our environmental footprint. When it comes to packaging, we carefully select sustainable materials. Our products are packaged exclusively using recycled cardboard, demonstrating our tangible commitment to waste reduction and environmental conservation. Furthermore, our vinyl production facility operates on a closed-loop system. This means that water is used efficiently, with no excess wastage.
