Sustainable Products and Services
"We are keenly aware of the impact our product can have on brand marketability, consumer safety and the environment throughout our products lifecycle. We agree with the consumer who feels it is important to balance what we consume with the waste it creates."
— Bryce Kristo, President & CEO, INX International
At INX, delivering innovative, safe and sustainable solutions that enhance the customer experience is our top priority. We want consumers, brand owners, and customers to feel confident in their product choices; and that’s why we develop our products to have minimal impact on the environment without sacrificing machine, processing, and end-use product performance.
To assure minimal impact, we strive to use renewable, natural-based raw materials from ethical and sustainably managed sources. Our product development efforts focus on material health and safety, product functionality for environmental impact, and consumer safety with a mind for recycle-ready products. We formulate our product to be easily applied by our customers to increase efficiencies that result in using the least amount of product, increasing production with high-quality results.
