Signs Express Bath are proud to become a member of The Planet Mark Sustainability scheme. This scheme is designed to help improve the sustainability of businesses in the Wiltshire, Somerset and South Gloucestershire area. It believes that every business can have positive impacts on society and the environment. When it comes to sustainability, we all have a part to play.
Mark Collins, owner of Signs Express (Bath) attended a Planet Mark Start! Workshop and came away with a sustainability business plan to help us reduce our negative impact on the local and global environment.
Signs Express (Bath) has agreed to work on the three main areas of change:
1) Recycling of non-commercial plastic and cardboard waste.
2) Find a new vinyl that has reduced plastic content.
3) Add a biodegradable product to our range.
We are pleased to confirm that we have already put this plan into action.
Firstly, we now have a recycling unit for our rubbish, allowing us to separate our recyclable waste from general waste. This is then recycled on a weekly basis.
Secondly, we have sourced a new vehicle wrap vinyl which is made using a non-PVC polymer material and a phthalate-free film. This has enabled us to offer an eco-friendly alternative to our customers, should they choose to use this instead of traditional PVC vinyl for their vehicle graphics.
Thirdly, we have sourced a new 100% biodegradable board. This Eco Board is a perfect alternative to soft foam boards, foam PVC and plastic composites. It perfect for hoarding, short term promotional posters and advertising materials. It is fully recyclable and easily reused, in-fact it can be recycled up to 8 times! This material is compostable and biodegradable which allows it to be disposed of in the normal paperboard waste stream. It is also FSC certified.
”We are excited to be adding more eco-friendly materials to our range. We can now give our customers more choice over the type of materials they wish to use and offer a more sustainable option. All these small changes can help make a real impact on our local community and environment ” Mark Collins, Owner Signs Express (Bath).
Signs Express (Bath) are now on our journey to becoming a more eco-friendly company. If you would like to join the programme or for more information on the Planet Mark Start! Programme visit www.theplanetmarkstart.com
