Blue in colour green at heart

Our company colour might be blue, but we are green at heart. It’s important to us that we are being as environmentally friendly as we can with our products as I’m sure it is for you. We have lots of customers enquiring about the sustainability of our products so I thought I’d write a handy blog about it, read on if you’re interested in helping to save our planet.

All of our flexible plastic wallets are recyclable (you will see the symbol on the top of the wallets) and once you are done with them if you don’t want to re-use them (why would you not?) then they can be recycled again – it’s a never ending cycle.

We supply biodegradable PVC cards as standard unless the customer specifically asks for non-bio (but why would they do that?). Currently our metal attachments such as the magnets and the pin and clips are not recyclable (but we are working on this!) so they will need to be removed and thrown away separately in a normal bin.

We also offer environmentally friendly lanyards they are made of recycled plastic. The plastic flakes are used to make polyester fibres which are then made in to lanyards, they can be screen printed, so can show your own logos and designs.

Of course it’s not all about the recyclability it’s also about the reusability, to reduce waste. Take our reusable window badges as an example, they can be used time and time again without them wearing or losing functionability. The same can be said of all of our wallets, holders and lanyards, the only thing that needs to be changed are the inserts inside.

Speaking of our badge inserts, we have had a few queries recently about whether or not we can produce these from recycled paper and the answer is yes we can! We are working on increasing our stock levels of these, however in the mean time they available with a fairly short lead time.

If you wanted to know more about recyclable inserts or anything mentioned above then please get in contact with the team at sales@identilam.co.uk or call 01293 851711.
