At Austere we recognize that nearly every aspect of our business affects the environment and are committed to reducing that impact.
Our sustainability initiatives are currently focused on our products and the packaging they come in. And, in pursuit of continuous improvement, we will expand and refine our initiatives as we listen and learn about how we can make informed and sustainable decisions.
As a manufacturer we understand that designing products that are built to last is one of the most significant ways we can reduce our impact. Austere products are made with high quality materials for performance, durability, and longevity. Our Power units offer six times the protection of standard power strips and our HDMI and Audio cables are designed for years of peak performance. Investing in quality today minimizes the need to purchase replacement products and curtails future waste.
How our products are made is of the upmost importance. We have close relationships with our manufacturing partners to ensure not only that our products exceed quality standards, but that they are produced in accordance with best labor practices.
If your electronics are no longer usable, we recommend dropping them off at an electronics collection site for proper disposal. You can use the Consumer Technology Association's Recycle Locator to find a drop off location near you. If you have electronics that are still usable, donating them to an organization, program or charity that you support is a great way to prolong their life.
Beyond our products, we prioritize packaging that delivers a memorable unboxing experience that is also sustainable. Our boxes are intentionally designed to be re-purposed and offer a non-plastic alternative to the industry standard blister packaging that is not guaranteed to be recycled.
We are continually looking for ways to develop a superior packaging solution, including sourcing sustainable paper and inks, reducing the amount of materials used, and ensuring recyclability.
Ultimately, it is our goal to minimize our environmental impact, maximize value for our customers, and work toward leading the industry to a more sustainable future.
We strive to be More Than Expected. Always.
