We all know that looking after our planet is becoming more and more crucial.
We also know that we’d all like to do more.
At mountingsubstrates.com we have sourced some products to help you make business decisions whilst considering the environmental impact.
Many products required in the presentation and photographic industry will have a plastic element attached to them however the way the products are used do not fall under the remit of ‘single use plastic’ which is the biggest issue surrounding the plastic industry at present.
For example, if we use a foam board to create a display that we intend to remain static for many years we might decide to choose a standard foam board. Whereas, if we are producing a display for a one off or short-term event, we may want to choose products that can be recycled or that breakdown responsibly after their use.
For that reason, we wanted to tell you about some of our ‘greener’ products.
