It's important for companies to recognise their environmental responsibilities. It's more important however that they physically do something about it. At Panelwarehouse.com, we are doing just that. How, you ask? Let us give you a quick guide to how we are living up to our green credentials:
We manufacture using eco-friendly materials
All the fabrics we use are produced in accordance with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1 eco-certification. The Oeko-Tex system ensures that fabrics, which have passed tests and been certified, do not contain concentrations of substances that could be hazardous to human health. Read more about the system at www.oekotex.com.
We now only use Correx Sheets which are produced from 100% recycled plastic in the manufacture of all our Display Stands, Display Boards and Office Screens.
The glue used to bond the fabric to our panels/screens is a non-hazardous water based emulsion adhesive. This means it is safe for our staff to use and, in the unlikely event of a spillage outside of our premises, this will not harm our environment.
We recycle just about everything
All of our primary packaging used for despatching display panels and office screens is 100% recyclable. This includes cardboard, foam padding and bubble wrap.
We endeavour to keep any wastage to a minimum, particularly with our aluminium. Any aluminium not used is recycled.
All of our plastic extrusions are 100% recyclable. By extrusions, we mean all of the plastics we use to make our display stands and office screens e.g. joining strips, connectors, c-shapes, etc. Any waste plastic is re-ground and re-used.
We try to recycle as much material as possible during the manufacturing process. Material that we can't use is collected for general recycling.
Panelwarehouse.com takes part in The Recycling Appeal by providing all of our used printer cartridges, which in turn, helps to raise funds and protect the environment. For more details or see how you can support this appeal, head over to www.recyclingappeal.com.
