An Eco Badging Solution for Sustainable Events
As events start to return after a difficult period, there are three things at the forefront of everyone’s minds: safety, sustainability snd savings. We know that funds are tight, and we’re aiming to provide events organisers with the best deals possible. Reducing the use of PVC and other plastics is also a focus when it comes to events, and that’s something ID Card Centre want to prioritise too.
Plastic pollution is a global issue, and we’ve come up with a number of strategies to reduce the impact our products may have on the environment. Our specialist recycling services mean that most of our products can be sustainably recycled and used in the production of new ID products.
We’re also working with organisations such as Plastic Bank to offset any other pollution we may create. Plastic Bank works with poor communities across several countries to reduce the amount of single use plastic that ends up in the oceans. They employ citizens in their collection areas to gather plastic from their environment in exchange for money, food, clean water, and even school tuition for their service.
With every order placed with ID Card Centre, 10 plastic bottles will be removed from the ocean.
Internally, we recognise that it can be easy to use plastic where it isn’t actually necessary. That’s why we’re actively trying to reduce the amount of plastics we offer. Instead, we’re exploring the use of ID cards made from paper and a number of other sustainable materials. We’re striving for the best quality plastic alternative there is, and we won’t stop until we find it!
For now, we’re proud to be sustainable event suppliers, and that’s why we’ve put together an exclusive event badging solution that is cost-effective, easy-to-use, and eco-friendly. It comes with everything you need to get your sustainable event up and running, including:
- Evolis Zenius Classic ID printer
- CardPresso XS card printing software
- 100 x Evolis Paper Cards
- 1 x Evolis Blackflex Wax Ribbon
- 100 x Black 10mm lanyards
There are also some additional extras if you need them, such as recyclable card holders or a hole punch.
The Evolis Zenius ID card printer is user friendly with high quality printing. It’s designed to be sustainable, featuring a standard of reduced energy consumption, as well as a sleep mode when not in use. With a sound level of only 46 dB and a weight of 3.3kg, it’s ideal for event badge printing as it’s quiet, lightweight, and easy to transport.
Sustainable event planners need not look any further, as the Eco bundle is perfect for printing single-use recyclable event tickets, badges or passes. The Zenius printer will produce monochrome prints on Evolis paper cards that can be recycled after use. Simply place strategic recycling units at the exit points of your venue and empty them into your normal recycling collection. The cards will be broken down into raw material and then used in the production of new paper-based materials.
The bundle also comes with 100 black lanyards. They’re made of RPET material, which means they’re made from recycled plastics such as plastic bottles and packaging. They can also be recycled if you no longer need them, with our specialist lanyard recycling service.
Proudly display event badges with the lanyards alone, or the additional option of card holders or a hole punch. With the 3-in-1 ID card hole punch, you can give your cards round holes, slots and rounded corners to be attached to lanyards.
Or, if you’d prefer, you can add 100 rigid recyclable card holders to your bundle. You can choose from a range of colours to make sure they fit your event branding perfectly. These cardholders are made from recycled PP (polypropylene) plastic, which means that they are widely recycled and can be used to create yet another recyclable plastic product!
If you’re an event planner looking for ways to make your events even more eco-friendly, the Eco event pass printer bundle is perfect. It’s an out-of-the-box solution that allows you to print sustainable event badges quickly and easily.
