About Tapp: in the rapidly evolving realm of datalogging, Tapp stands distinctively apart. Our paper dataloggers symbolize not just the forefront of technological evolution, but also echo our unwavering commitment to ecological sustainability. At Tapp, we’re not about business as usual. We question – why base electronics on materials that weigh heavily on our environment and escalate waste challenges?

Our vision: imagine a world where paper – an age-old, recyclable treasure – is the bedrock of cutting-edge electronics. A world where innovation doesn’t compromise the environment, but complements it.

Our mission: for us, paper isn’t merely a carrier of thoughts; we champion it as the ideal foundation for electronics. Our state-of-the-art paper dataloggers embody not just tech sophistication but our profound eco-devotion. A notable mention? Our choice of paper, sourced from agricultural waste instead of conventional wood, solidifying our ethos of innovation and eco-responsibility.

Guided by the ‘end-of-life’ ethos, we ensure our creations return gracefully to the earth, post their prime. We aim to be more than a tech entity; we envision a transformative wave, nudging enterprises towards eco-conscious datalogging.
