Here at Norwell Outdoor Fitness we love being outside exercising in nature. The nature is not only our workspace, but also our life, and it is therefore important for us to help preserve it. This is not only for us now, but also so our children can grow up in a safe, healthy and green world. We will therefore always aim at developing in a sustainable manner.
We wish to promote the idea of exercising outside, as it removes the negative energy consuming impacts on the environment of exercising indoors. Some of the advantages, for example, are that all our outdoor fitness equipment is powered by human energy, and all our gyms are powered by the sun and nature. This has no negative impact on the environment and is therefore truly sustainable fitness!
OUR MATERIAL CHOICE
As a company we take care of reducing our impact on the environment whereby all our equipment is made of steel, which is 100% recyclable, and can be recycled an infinite amount of times. We furthermore manufacture products of the highest quality, which will extend the product's life span. We will constantly evaluate how to reduce any negative impact on the environment in all our material choices.
Working with sustainability in mind pervades our daily work, where we keep challenging ourselves to find new ways to decrease waste and energy consumption both around the workshop and office. These activities include such as going as paperless as possible, printing double-sided, activate stand/sleep setting on computers, power down electronics when not in use, using energy efficient lighting bulbs, recycling waste and much more.
