Platinum Embrace Sustainability with Latest Product Launch.

Posted by


At Platinum we believe that outstanding environmental practice needn’t cost the earth. The choices we make can have an impact on the world we live in. Making an informed decision to choose responsibly sourced paper and materials strengthens our commitment to the environment. That’s why we are proud to be one of just a handful of carbon-balanced printers, with an ISO 14001 accreditation.

As a Carbon Balanced Printer, we are helping global conservation charity World Land Trust preserve critically threatened habitat. This not only offsets our carbon footprint, but it also helps protect the dozens of endangered species calling these forests home. You can trust that you’re working with a company whose environmental commitment goes beyond just paper choices.

We’re on a mission to make sustainable printing practices accessible for all our customers. Our commitment to environmental responsibility extends beyond just the materials we use—it’s ingrained in every aspect of our operations. That’s why we’re excited to introduce the latest additions to our eco-friendly range: biodegradable branded paper cups and biodegradable banner material.

Our new bio-degradable cups are crafted from fully sustainable innovative packaging board engineered specifically for food and drink, our paper cups offer a durable yet eco-friendly solution. Unlike conventional cups that rely on laminated plastics or extruded polymers, ours are made without these materials, reducing their environmental footprint.

Our goal is simple: to help businesses achieve sustainability without sacrificing product quality or performance. Our bio-degradable cups are designed to provide multiple barriers against moisture, grease, and liquid, ensuring that your beverages stay fresh without harming the planet. Unlike other cups on the market, ours can be recycled in any recycling stream, making them easy to dispose of responsibly. Additionally, they biodegrade at a faster rate, minimising their environmental impact. Plus, they’re methane-free, suitable for home composting, and repulpable, further reducing waste.

In addition to the cups we are now also offering our new biodegradable banner which features decomposable media and a recyclable cassette. The banner material is tear and scratch-resistant and compatible with our Eco, Vali, or Medi banner systems available at differing price points. After its two-year lifespan when disposed of properly, it decomposes within 9 to 12 months leaving a reduced impact on the environment.

Join us at Platinum in embracing sustainable solutions for your printing needs. Together, we can make a difference.
