How green is your plastic flyer holder?

The humble plastic flyer holder might not seem important in the global campaign to support the environment. However, as concern for the environment is increasing, every aspect of business is being looked at from an environmental point of view - and engaging in environmentally friendly business practices has never been as important as it is now.

Environmentally friendly business practices

Retailers, the hospitality sector, and of course local authorities are looking to minimise their impact on the environment, and that includes their supply chains – and that brings us back to the humble leaflet holder. Most leaflet holders and brochure stands are manufactured from some form of plastic,and all plastics are bad, right? Well, not right. Reducing the use of single-use plastics is of major concern globally – most of us have seen the terrible images of single use plastic polluting the seas and rivers, as well as causing damage to the wildlife who call such habitats home. However, our literature stands are made from multi-use plastic and the good news is multi-use plastic can be recycled. Think of the plastics that you recycle at home - these are the same types of plastic that is used to make most commercial leaflet holders and brochure holders, menu stands and POS retail displays. Once recycled the resulting product is used in the manufacture of many other products.

Plastic flyer holders & sustainability

So how can a plastic flyer holder be thought of as sustainable? Sustainability is a much larger picture than recyclability. Sustainability is concerned with the long term reduction of processes and actions that adversely impact on the environment. One useful way to reduce environmental impact is to buy products that have as long a useable life as possible; constant replacement of even the most basic POS displays is the least sustainable choice for buyers. So choosing high quality products is not just common sense - it makes environmental sense too.

Choosing the right manufacturer of PoS Solutions

High quality products are likely to be manufactured by reputable POS retail display manufacturers such as Wrights GPX. Be sure to check out environmental policies, aspirations and successes - if companies don’t make such info readily available they might not have any environmental concerns at all. Another aspect of sustainable manufacturing is the efficiency of production processes. Investment in new machinery and technology is likely to mean faster process, less waste and lower energy use – all better news for the environment. Even the humble leaflet holder has a story to tell in the campaign for a better environment.
