Last year Digital ID printed and issued 8 million personalised lanyards into the UK market with the majority of these lanyards printed dye sub onto a polyester material.
As part of our ongoing commitment to be eco-friendly, we’ve now made the decision to offer a dye sub and RPET lanyard at no extra cost.
Using RPET (recycled plastic) as an alternative to Polyester is a huge step forward on the path toward a greener, safer and cleaner future.
Let’s explain the science
RPET looks exactly the same as polyester but it’s made from recycled plastic bottles.
Each lanyard is made using woven fibres of recycled polyester plastic (RPET).
When compared to virgin material, RPET production uses:
- No additional chemicals (other than cleaning detergents).
- 59% less energy
- 32% less CO2 emissions
