PRINTING THAT DOESN'T COST THE EARTH

Our Environmental Protection Practices

FROM THE DIRECTOR

Being Eco-Friendly is our mission

"We care about being environmentally friendly. It has always been a feature of our business model and long may it continue.

Where possible we endeavour to use recyclable products, reduce paper wastage and implement energy saving practices throughout the workplace.

Creative Solutions have been implementing a successful environmental policy for a number of years. Our aim is to be industry leaders in minimising our effect on the environment through the prevention of pollution, good working practice and recycling wherever possible."

Our Sustainable Print Mission

What we are doing to combat climate change, boost environmental protection here at Creative Solutions.

PRODUCTS - RECYCLING AND RE-USIBILITY 

  • We take care to select suppliers that have a robust and active environmental policy and comply with environmental legislation and regulations

    • Many of our products have an easy to change graphic system which allows the signage to be changed so the display can be updated with minimal waste
    • Other products can be reconfigured so that the function of the display can be changed rather than having to replace it, and this reduces the amount of waste.
    • Many displays can be recycled
    • Lost of broken components can be readily replaced by us, reducing the need to purchase a new display
    • In the case of our aluminium stands, in the event you no longer want your display you can simply send back the display for recycling and we will credit you the current value (by weight) of the aluminium.
    • Many of our products are designed to be lightweight and portable, and are engineered to use as little raw material as possible
    • Our display systems are to designed for multi-use. They are modular and re-configurable so they can be adapted and built on to accomodate different display needs

PACKAGING 

Many displays are shipped in reusable cartons manufactured from 60% recycled materials. Some packaging is durable double-walled cardboard, which can be re-used. Velcro straps are provided to make the repackaging process as easy and waste free as possible.

We also offer an eco-packaging alternative to cut-down the amount going to landfill. These include biodegradable packing peanuts, recyclable protective bags and 100% recycled cardboard.

OFFICE

At Creative Solutions we have reduced the amount of paper promotional material we send out to customers and favour downloadable PDF brochures direct from the website.

Within our office environment, we promote an environmentally friendly awareness amongst staff with various poster campaigns, highlighting the need to be energy and recycling conscious. All of our office waste is recycled locally.

We have a dedicated staff member who drives forward energy saving measures in order to reduce our carbon footprint and waste.

MARKETING

Our marketing strategy has deliberately moved away from paper-based communication and promotional campaigns where possible.

We are continuously striving to find better, more sustainable print medias and solutions to current PVC and plastic-based materials. These are already online, offered as a direct alternative where suitable.

We are currently launching a dedicated Eco-Range for our website so you can see all our amazing greener options in one space. The Print Industry in notoriously bad for the environment, so we are doing everything we can to change that status.
