What sustainability certifications does TAPP Water have? How do I know that the products are truly eco-friendly?
At TAPP Water we are proud to provide the most sustainable water filters available today. In addition to this we are constantly working to improve the product and business to become even more sustainable.
To prove our claims we have achieved several environmental certifications.
The Label is awarded to products, services, and/or processes that combine credible environmental and economic performance, while outperforming the mainstream options in its market. The decision to grant the Label is based on a rigorous assessment performed by external, independent Experts. The development of stringent selection criteria has resulted in the Solar Impulse Label being internationally recognized and endorsed by several institutions, states, and cities around the world.
TAPP Water was awarded the prestige label in November 2019 for the EcoPro and EcoPro Compact filters.

EU rules on packaging and packaging waste cover both packaging design and packaging waste management. They aim to deal with the increasing quantities of packaging waste, which cause environmental problems. They also aim to remove barriers in the internal market – caused by EU countries adopting different rules on packaging design.
TAPP Water adheres to the strictest standards in terms of using recycled packaging and soyaink print. Our packaging don't contain any plastic bags insite and our manuals are primarily digital.
More specifically we are also registered and adhere to Germany VerpackG and Triman for France.
All the materials we use are considered foodsafe which also means that they will not contaminate the waste cycle.
