Our Earth is important to us and keeping her healthy is something that CardsPlus values strongly.
Recycling, reducing and reusing are our best means to improve the Earth for future generations.We believe that it is our responsibility to be good stewards with what we have been given and do our utmost to be responsible in our day to day operations.
Reducing waste is the biggest method that we help our planet. We do this by:
- Offering digital proof sheets as a standard with every order allows our clients to double check telephone numbers, placements and spelling before printing.
- Optional hard-copy colour verification samples ensures that colour matching and quality is satisfactory before printing a full print run.
- Human double checking policy ensures that each order is checked and double checked for correctness before printing occurs
- Using good equipment ensures less waste from misprints, tolerance mis-cuts and unsatisfactory print quality. We believe in buying the best equipment available so that the card results are the finest pieces of plastic possible
- Using high quality PVC ensures that the plastic cards last as long as possible in the card holder’s wallet. This reduces the over all demand for plastic cards since cards last longer
- Services like our Just in Time service help clients reduce waste on their level by printing as they need stock without risking huge waste from telephone changes, design changes, address changes, or even unfortunate events like fire or burglary.
RECYCLE RECYCLE RECYCLE:
- We recycle all offcuts of plastic and encourage clients to do the same. Facilities are available for clients to offer recycling drop boxes for their card holders.
- All our plastic core contains at least 10% recycled plastic. Greater levels of recycled plastic is also available.
You see, we believe in being responsible with our resources, not being gimmicky. We’re not here to “green wash” our clients and bully them into choosing a gimmick that has been labeled as more green. By reducing the consumption of plastic, reusing plastic, and recycling plastic, CardsPlus is offering clients across Africa a proven, stable method of improving our planet for generations to come.
CardsPlus is committed to providing fully inclusive customised plastic card solutions. We do this with help from our unique combination of speedy service, flexibility, knowledge, commitment to quality and support.
We’re proud to have helped thousands of African companies get the most from their plastic cards. Read more about us on http://www.cardsplus.co.za/
