Why have you introduced a range of recycled tools?
With lifestyles becoming more eco-friendly, we know that our customers are looking for more sustainable solutions for their home. BLACK+DECKER® is committed to building a more sustainable future, and the introduction of the reviva™ range is a major step in this journey.
Are the tools as strong and durable as their ‘non-recycled’ equivalents?
Yes, the reviva™ tool housings are built from Tritan™ Renew, which is as tough and resilient as standard plastics.
What is Tritan™ Renew?
Tritan™ Renew is a 50% certified recycled material made by
Eastman, and is created from repurposed single-use plastic bottles that are diverted or recovered from landfill or the sea.
Tritan™ Renew is produced through Advanced Circular Recycling, also known as molecular recycling. Unlike mechanical recycling, molecular recycling transforms single-use waste plastic into basic building blocks that are then used to make durable, high-performance materials. This process reduces the use of fossil-based resources and lowers greenhouse gas emissions while providing the performance of virgin plastic materials and environmental benefits of 50% recycled content.
Do tools made from recycled materials perform as well as existing products?
The reviva™ range has been engineered to deliver excellent performance, reliability and runtime, equal to or better than existing models.
How is the recycled content certified?
The recycled material is certified through a third-party mass balance allocation process (via
ISCC). Can the tools be recycled themselves once they are no longer needed?
Yes, the material they are made from (Tritan™ Renew) is fully recyclable. To return the products for recycling, please visit
Can the batteries also be recycled?
The reviva™ internal battery design enables easy removal for when the tool is ready for recycling.
We are creating and implementing programmes for battery and end-of-life tool recycling, and will be posting more information on this site soon find out what is currently available here What is the packaging made from?
The reviva™ packaging is made from 100% recycled card and is, in turn, 100% recyclable.
What are BLACK+DECKER®’s sustainability goals?
The reviva™ range is our latest step in creating more sustainable products, in line with our company’s Environment, Social & Governance (ESG) strategy.
As part of Stanley Black & Decker, our ESG strategy includes a focus on ‘Innovating with Purpose’, where we aim to design products for circularity across material selection, use and end-of-life considerations, with a near-term goal of 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025.
In 2018, Stanley Black & Decker joined with leading businesses and governments to sign the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, an initiative of The Ellen MacArthur Foundation and United Nations Environment Programme. Eastman – the manufacturer of Tritan™ Renew – is also a signatory to the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment. What is Stanley Black & Decker’s Environment, Social & Governance (ESG) strategy?
Stanley Black & Decker’s purpose – For Those Who Make the World – helped launch an ESG strategy that tied the company’s purpose with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. While the company has always had a deep commitment to corporate social responsibility, the ESG strategy, born in 2017, was reflective of the company’s broader ambition to help create a more sustainable world.
The strategy focuses the company's efforts on three key pillars: empowering makers, innovating with purpose and creating a more sustainable world. By 2030, Stanley Black & Decker plans to enable 10 million creators and makers to thrive in a changing world, innovate our products to enhance the lives of 500 million people, and be carbon positive in its global operations, meaning its carbon capture is greater than its carbon emissions.
