Eco-Friendly Products: 13th June 2022

Monday, June 13th, 2022

We are very keen to promote all our card products and are always trying to find ways of recycling wherever we can.

Our industry was traditionally very plastic orientated but over the years we have moved to create our own bespoke card products, having die cut templates made with UK printers in order to produce really high quality packaging for your CDs and DVDs . I think this is key, we haven’t brought in card products that are in any way inferior to the traditional plastic options.

Our card is responsibily sourced and FSC Certified as sustainable….and very high GSM…so the single card wallets, the lancing packs and double card wallets are all 350 gsm…lovely and thick and professional to the touch and print, as well as being very protective for your discs. They are all silk finish.

Recycling Our Waste Discs: 9th March 2022

Wednesday, March 9th, 2022

Revive Innovations are a start up company in Bristol .

They produce a new signature material called RE-CD which uses our waste discs to produce a new beautiful & robust material.

This is then manufactured using common workshop tools and processes into peices of furniture, jewellery and many other products. Production has low emissions and products are repairable and reprocessable.

The finish on products is sanded and polished to either a matt or gloss finish.

It is made from 100% recycled discs whether they are Cds, Dvds or Blu-Ray.

The physical properties of RE-CD is durable, hardwearing and temperature resistant.

The end product is a unique sustainable composite material.

 

Have a look …what they are doing there is amazing!

Recycling Our Waste Discs: 28th February 2022

Monday, February 28th, 2022

We are delighted, in fact over the moon, to partner with Revive Innovations to recycle our waste discs.

For a long time we have struggled to find a viable long term way of recycling discs.

We build up unwanted discs when, for example a machine does a “bad” print or our burners reject a disc.

Over time these mount up and apart from a few small projects, we have never found anywhere to recycle these on a longterm basis.

More news next week on Revive Innovations and the new life breathed in to our rejected discs.

Recycling at Duplication Centre: 8th December 2021

Wednesday, December 8th, 2021

Chatting to a customer yesterday made me think about how much we are able to recycle and be eco-friendly, even in our industry which has traditionally been very plastic orientated.

We have promoted all our Eco-friendly products for some years and we only use FSC Certified and Sustainable Card and Paper.

In addition to that we recycle all incoming supplies boxes and use them to double box and protect our outgoing orders.

Our general ethos is to try to recycle anything we can …from bubble bags, & boxes to over-run discs / spoiled discs.

All of this makes sense to protect our environment and makes great business sense too .

Let me know if you have any other ideas that we can adopt ,which maybe i havent thought of !
