The Green Zone is dedicated to the latest and most environmentally friendly printing media available in response to the increasingly heightened focus on climate change and our shared responsibility in reducing our impact on the environment. This range is constantly reviewed and updated as we search for new environmentally friendly products. We are always reaching out to paper mills and inkjet product manufacturing companies for recyclable and environmentally friendly product development information and are pleased to help with any research and promote products that will enable us all to reduce our impact on the environment.
Our responsible packaging commitment
In the spirit of our Green Zone, we are continually striving to reduce our environmental impact through the ongoing assessment of our packaging methods and the reduction of our plastics usage, while still ensuring goods arrive in perfect condition.
This review policy has led us to cease using bubble wrap for packaging, for example, replacing it with corrugated card, while we also do not use any heavy-duty plastic strapping.
Conscientious shoppers on the lookout for printing media will be able to find various recycled products across our range. These include – for those seeking out recycled inkjet paper rolls – 80gsm Canon Recycled Inkjet Paper, in addition to 330gsm HP Recycled Satin Canvas.
The Canon paper carries the Oce branding and is manufactured with zero carbon dioxide emissions during the entire process. You can be confident that this 100% recycled ultra-white report-grade plotter paper is well-suited to high-resolution monochrome and line colour work. It is a super-smooth paper that can be depended on to deliver excellent inkjet performance and print results, whether a HP, Oce, Canon, Epson or Encad dye and pigment inkjet printer is used.
As for the HP Recycled Satin Canvas, this revolutionary product is available in a range of sizes – including 44”, 60”, A0 36” and A1 24” – and is a high-quality, instant-dry bright white satin canvas, entirely made with yarn from waste plastic water bottles. It is REACH compliant, confirming it meets environmental goals. It has a slightly textured surface with a satin coating which eliminates the need to add a varnish top coat and will not crack when stretched. It’s precise colour projection makes this a superb choice for the production of wraps, photos, retail and hospitality decor prints.
Even eco-friendly display and mounting boards are available so if you are in the market for an environmentally friendly alternative to the typical foamboard, why not consider our Eaglecell white display boards? While these boards are manufactured from 100% paper, they convincingly combine strength with lightness, due to the core’s fabrication to form a series of triangular cells, resulting in a unique ‘honeycomb’ appearance. It is also 100% recycleable and repulpable with other paper products, negating any long term impact on the environment.
Biodegradable foamboard is available too, however, under our own Prizma Graphics brand, consisting of 15% recycled content and formulated with bio resins that cause the discarded foamboard to degrade in landfills to leave environmentally safe biomass composts. It is a very effective foamboard when in use as well, of course, its lightweight polystyrene core backed onto a card and paper liner lending itself well to various artwork uses, such as presentations and model making. It is well worth bearing in mind that conventional foamboards will take between 80 to 450 years to biodegrade. Not so with our biodegradable foam board, its exclusive polystyrene centre requires 1 to 5 years for 100% breakdown.
