True to its mission for complete transparency and environmental consciousness, the innovative and award-winning brand, TEK just announced that it has added the prestigious B Corp certification to its already impressive line-up of proactive endeavors.
The B Corp certification holds businesses to rigorous environmental and practice standards, and is awarded to only the top tier of companies and individuals who can comply.
“Earning a B-Corp Certification is a very important recognition for TEK,” says Thomas Valsecchi, Sales Manager for TEK. “The B-Corp Certification reflects our core values as a company, and we will continue to strive to better serve the community, the environment and our customers in all ways.”
The B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee, or USDA Organic certification is to milk. They are for-profit companies who have chosen to go through the evaluation process to uphold the meticulous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. Overall, B Corp certifications are better for workers, better for the community and better for the environment. TEK is among more than 1,600 exceptional businesses from 42 countries and over 120 industries who are working together to redefine what success in business looks like.
Dubbed the “Queen of Brushes”, TEK has been a leader in the brush and comb industry since conception in 1977. It has since been featured at the Modern Art Museum of New York, and has received awards from the Honour Selection of Grand Design International Exposition at the Museum of Science and Technology of Milan, among others. Every component of TEK’s wooden products has been created following sustainable principles, combining Made-in-Italy craftsmanship and technology with strong design and fashion sensibilities. And both professionals and consumers alike have responded by embracing the brand for everything it stands for.
All of the wood used in their products has been Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified to mark the precise environmental, social and economic standards the line adheres to, and comes from responsibly managed forests. Caucciu rubber is used to avoid the oil derivative, while the handle base is colored with vegetal aniline stained beeswax and finished with linen oil for a natural, toxin-free product.
TEK is an Italian company that produces 100% FSC certified wooden brushes, combs and other products that are a must-have item for every hairdresser. With a special attention given to environmental protection, every single component of TEK’s wooden products have been crafted following sustainable principles. TEK’s products combine Made in Italy craftsmanship and technology, without ignoring design and fashion, and have been dedicated to different cosmetic and beauty market areas like beauty salons, perfumery, herbalist’s shops and pharmacies.
