Our attitude towards our environmental responsibility is no different. So, if reducing your carbon footprint is a goal, then please speak to us and we can guide you through the sustainable branded packaging, labelling and promotional options we offer.

The picture around the term ‘environmentally friendly’ is not a clear one. Our role at British Tags is to help you help the planet. We can advise you as to the provenance of both the materials and the ecological transparency of the manufacturing process for. Guiding our customers through the minefield of environmental jargon, false claims and misleading statements that seem to pervade our industry, so that you have all the facts to help you choose the most sustainable solution for your business with our environmentally friendly branded products.

Reducing Your Carbon Footprint

Applying our knowledge to ensure that products and packaging are optimised for the circular economy to reduce any one product’s carbon footprint. Where possible we can also minimise the carbon footprint through local manufacture, We can hold stock in China as well as India, turkey and UK, minimising the environmental cost of transport.

Eco Friendly Product's

We are continually working with our suppliers and factories to find ways to make as many of our products in as sustainable a manner as we can. Our work on this is never complete as we continually strive to find new earth-friendly methods of production and to source responsible materials.

For instance, we can used recycled yarn for our woven labels and branded ribbon, or bamboo fibre for our wristbands and lanyards. We can offer you organic cotton for your cotton labels rather than commercially produced raw cotton. For our paper products (tissue paper, bags, boxes, swing tickets and more) we can supply these using recyclable and biodegradable paper as well as FSC paper grown responsibly. There are now some excellent laminations which use tree sap rather than a chemically produced substance. “Plastic” bags can now be made of potato starch or sugar cane and we also can use a range of eco-friendly inks.

We want to reduce both our carbon footprint and yours and we will work with you to design and produce a responsible product that you can be proud of.
