Environmental issues

We care about the environment and consequentially our badges are designed to last.

We offer a name badge recycling service. Where possible we re-grind and re-use any plastic in the manufacture of new badges. Where this isn’t possible we will separate the materials and return to our raw material suppliers for reprocessing and recycling.

We avoid the use of adhesives and would discourage the addition of acrylic doming as these make the name badges difficult to recycle.

We are accredited to ISO14001 Environmental standard, which hopefully keeps us thinking.
