Eco Friendly and Recycled Packaging
Discus Group is working towards the enviromental award ISO14001 and
currently offers a range of eco-friendly packaging or recycled
packaging made from recycled paper and board for cd / dvd books, card
wallets and digipaks which can also be printed using vegatable dyes.
Don't despair if you want traditional dvd cases or cd cases we also
offer plastic disc casing made from either total or partially recycled
polycarbonate substrate therefore reducing the enviromental impact
of your order.
Later this year when testing is completed we hope to be offering Rice
Based plastic cd dvd cases. This the plastic has already been used
to make handles of paper fans and benches, this will be the first
time that it has been employed for CD/DVD cases.
The rice-based plastic is made from non food rice and plastic resin.
The rice accounts for more than 10% of the material. The plastic
uses less fossil material than existing plastics made entirely from
oil so will be better for the environment.
In the mean time we continue to offer our standard black recycled
DVD Cases ever popular utilising reground poly carbonate from sources
such as milk cartons to make new cases for you.
Eco Friendly or recycled DVDs
Eco Friendly or recylced CDs and DVDs are not yet available but if
you use a lot of blank CDs and DVDs, or if you use a CD or DVD duplication
or replication service, it is much better to buy from a company such
as Discus Group Limited that has minimal environmental impact in the
Group has been actively recycling its CD DVD, paper and card board
waste for 8 years now, achieving almost 100%. Recycling is a growing
part of our industry with major environmental and long-term economic
benefits being delivered. Recycling reduces the amount of waste deposited
in landfill and reduces the amount of energy used in manufacturing
new materials, thus helping reduce emissions of greenhouse gasses
and therefore helping avert climate change.
Send us your old CD's and DVD's and we will regrind them down so the
plastic can be reused in making other plastic goods and recover the
metals in the discs.
services are common for materials such as paper, cardboard, glass,
plastic which are easily recyclable. However, more complex products
that use more than one material are more difficult to recycle. The
music, movie and IT industries produce a lot of waste in the form
of CDs and DVDs, but now these can also be recycled as Discus Group
offers to receive your optical disc waste to be reground into polycarbonate
beads for reuse.
Furthermore Discus Group offers a recycling service for old or surplus
discs from clients to be reground for reuse in the manufacturing of
new plastic products. For small quantities just send your discs in
cartons to Discus Group for enviromental disposal, reducing the impact
on our planet and conserving precious resources. For large numbers
of discs contact us for more details on 0871 2200 199
