Dataflex, the company behind Bento, enjoyed a hugely successful Orgatec 2018, the leading bi-annual international workplace trade fair held 23-27 October 2018 in Cologne, Germany. The event confirmed the Dutch company’s growing status as leaders in ergonomic design and pioneers in sustainability. A reputation reflected in the 66% rise on 2016 in the number of industry insiders visiting the Dataflex stand during the week.
There was a lot of buzz around Life Cycle Assessment and the Dataflex Return program, where Dataflex takes in old bento's (and other dataflex products) and makes sure it's recycled or even refurbished. Ready for a second life.
Bento is developed to optimize this process. Made from recyclable materials and designed for easy disassembly, it’s ready for reuse in a circular economy. Dataflex is now researching which materials usable with Bento would have the least environmental impact. One option, enthusiastically received by many of you at Orgatec, was sustainably-grown bamboo.
