EAB Values

We learned that actions speak louder than words

We’ve learned a lot in the last 40 years when it comes to power tool accessories and the environment:


We introduced the concept of buy it, exchange it, and save in 1976 and continue to refine it today. Our business model provides power tool accessory users with an incentive to return used items. When customers bring back a used product, we exchange it for a new one at a fraction of the original price. We either remanufacture or recycle items that are returned to us—keeping them out of the landfill.


We believe that we’re all in this together. We have partnered with participating retail stores across North America and we encourage customers to drop off any metal power tool accessory. All the material that we collect is recycled into usable steel products.


Nothing added. Nothing taken away. Our business is focused on providing power tool accessories of uncompromising quality and durability. We strive to limit the use of environmentally harmful additives and elements, that’s why we don’t chromium plate our blades. It is an unnecessary step that does not improve performance and yields a toxic and harmful by-product both in the manufacturing and recycling process.


We sell power tool accessories, not plastic packaging. Our policy of minimal product packaging reduces the amount of waste material generated by EAB products. Where possible, we try to ensure that the packaging we use has post-consumer content and is recyclable. Less packaging equals less waste, and we believe that’s a good thing.


It’s a business and people practice. All our employees are encouraged to re-use or recycle all paper products, packaging materials, manufacturing waste, and more. We are continually searching for more environmentally friendly ways to conduct our business and minimize our impact on the environment.


We are members of the Recycling Council of British Columbia. As members, we work with like-minded organizations to collect knowledge, share information, and make recommendations on specific topics like recycling, remanufacturing, and packaging. All this with the ultimate goal of becoming a zero waste economy.
