Ebadges is one of the leading suppliers and manufacturers of badge machines in Europe. The Ebadge team works tirelessly to produce and supply its badge machines to you in a more environmentally-friendly and sustainable way, from product and machine manufacture to reduced carbon footprint.
In the badge industry, it is difficult to do without plastic because it is the most efficient product for making badge backs. That said, all badge backs marketed by eBadges are recyclable. In addition, at eBadges we are also looking into environmentally- friendly alternatives and have recently started selling 25mm badge sets that include degradable PLA Mylar.
The three machines in the eBadges range, the Micro, Mini and Maxi, are made in the UK from aluminium, a durable and highly recyclable metal. The machines are sturdy and durable, designed for repeated use over many years.
What is pla?
Polylactic acid (PLA) differs from most thermoplastic polymers because it is derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane. Polylactic acid is biodegradable and can be used as a substitute for existing manufacturing processes, such as the back of badges.
Sustainability throughout the supply chain
At eBadges, we not only try to develop our products to make them more sustainable, but we are also aware that the packaging we use must be as environmentally-friendly as possible. The 25mm eco-friendly components we sell are packaged in biodegradable bags. By developing this range in other sizes in the near future, we hope to package most components in the same way.
Single-use plastic is a big global problem and with this initiative eBadges aims to reduce its use as much as possible. At eBadges we use a packaging service with an ecological focus to reduce our carbon footprint.
Through this approach, we pride ourselves on having a very low carbon footprint, with all our components coming from a radius of only 70 miles. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions can thus prevent global warming.
The increase in carbon dioxide levels due to human activity since the industrial revolution is now causing global warming that is having repercussions around the world. It is therefore essential to have a low carbon footprint.
In 2020, it is vital that every company contributes to a better future by reducing the use of plastics, and having a smaller carbon footprint to initiate the change our planet so badly needs.
This can also save money through practices such as energy conservation, recycling, the use of water saving devices, energy efficient equipment, solar power and waste reduction, all of which help to keep costs down.
