Green Commitment

What does it take to produce power tool accessories?

Let’s face it, the production of power tool accessories requires vast amounts of steel. And the production of steel uses many of our planet’s diminishing natural resources; the following resources are required to produce steel:

  • Iron ore
  • Limestone
  • Coking coal
  • Water

Not to mention manpower, technology, giant manufacturing facilities, tons of heavy duty equipment, and a sophisticated and costly transportation infrastructure to ship finished products around the globe. Additionally, the entire process of producing steel results in billions of tons of solid waste (1.28 tons for every ton of steel producted), water pollutants, and unclean air emissions.

Keeping used steel out of our landfills

Every year for 40 years, EAB has been actively collecting used power tool accessories as part of its blade exchange system. On average, we keep 60 tons of steel out of our landfills every year.

Help us make a difference
