One of the first steps towards reducing your prints impact on the environment is to consider the usage of recycled or recyclable materials. We have a range of recycled and recyclable materials that offer a suitable replacement to our normal go-to materials with very little price difference.
Our range of new recycled and recyclable materials have been designed to be used in the print and signage industry with no compromise on quality and in may cases our environmentally friendly alternative materials are lighter, stronger with increased flexibility and reduced brittleness.
Recycled materials are materials that were previously used and processed to be used again. Rather than the original materials being sent directly to landfill they are collected and re-processed into new products to be re-used. This reduces the impact the materials have on the environment as re-using materials reduces the stress on natural resources and reduces pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials.
Recyclable materials reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfills and incinerators by being processed and repurposed into new products such as detergent bottles, traffic cones and water bottles.
Examples of our range of environmentally friendly materials include;
