It has long been held that a product’s best environmental argument is its durability. A Linder boat or a Linder canoe (Inkas) has a long service life. We do not know exactly how long. Our aluminium products have, so far, only been around a little over 30 years! Our company is already certified in accordance with future requirements in respect of producers’ liability. Our products are almost 100 percent recyclable. Linder is one of the few small boat manufacturers using buoyancy bodies made of polyethylene foam. This thermoplastic can be recycled or, for the purposes of energy recovery, freely burnt with no toxic gases being given off. Is it business madness to build, like Linder, products that may last a full generation? We do not think so. Quality and recycling benefit more than Linder and Linder customers alone.
