Jeetek expands green products line-up
Dubai, January 21, 2012
Jeetek said it is expanding its portfolio of eco-friendly lifestyle technology products in line with the company’s continuing thrust to promote environmental conservation and protection in the Middle East.
According to a report by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) titled "Recycling - from E-Waste to Resources," the amount of e-waste produced from mobile phones, computers and other electronic devices could rise by up to 500 per cent within the next decade in some countries, underlining the urgency of creating awareness about environmental practices in the region.
Jeetek’s portfolio of 'green' products include the full range of offerings from Santok, an ISO 14001 certified, UK-based manufacturer of lifestyle technology devices renowned for its environmental practices and green-certified product line.
Among the many Santok products that have been produced using recycled products and eco-friendly manufacturing processes include the STK 3-in-1 USB Charging Data Cable, STK BTH20 Multi-Point Bluetooth Headset (USB Charger Cable) and the STK Helios Emergency Charger with 10 interchangeable connectors.
All these products carry a distinctive stamp on the packaging to communicate its adherence to green-certification requirements, said the leading distributor of lifestyle technology products.
Jihad El Eit, CEO & founder, said: "Reaffirming Jeetek's commitment to environmental stewardship, we has formed strategic alliances with Santok and other lifestyle technology manufacturers that have consistently demonstrated an excellent environmental track record."
"It is important that we address critical environmental issues because these can potentially deliver a long-term negative impact on the social and business landscape," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
