Apart from being huge animal lovers at Dextronix, we are also big fans of our beautiful oceans and their wildlife. Dextronix is a supporting contributor to “The Ocean Clean Up”, a non-profit whose mission is to rid the world’s oceans of waste and plastics through very innovative measures.
Dextronix aims to reduce our carbon footprint by recycling, reusing shipping materials and cardboard boxes as much as possible, and creating digital documents, using less paper wherever we can do so. Some of our products however, like our interventional devices, i.e. our tracheal stent delivery systems are not bio-degradable and have plastic that ends up in the trash. To help offset this, we support important environmental causes such as “The Ocean Clean Up” and their hard work.
