Eco-friendly badge holders

All about eco-friendly badge holders

Today, ecology is part of our daily lives. It's impossible not to consider environmental protection and the need for more responsible consumption in a constantly moving world. This ecological responsibility influences our choices, and it's for the better! At Sogedex, we want to help you commit to ecology by offering you a responsible alternative with recycled and recyclable badge holders.

We have added the ecological badge holders to respond to the eco-friendly approach. Whether for occasional or regular use, the badge holder is an essential and practical identification accessory. You can find various recycled and/or recyclable materials as well as different shapes, sizes, and orientations to better meet your needs.

We offer two types of eco-friendly badge holders: products made from eco-responsible materials and those made from recyclable materials. But what's the difference?

Eco-friendly badge holder: The term "eco-friendly" is attributed to products that, minimize their impact on the environment as much as possible during their lifecycle, whether it's in terms of packaging, transportation, usage, or recycling.

Recyclable material badge holder: When processed by the recycling center, badge holders made from recyclable materials are transformed into flakes that will be reused in the creation of new products.

The eco-friendly materials of our badge holders

Among the eco-responsible badge holders, we offer products made from various recycled and/or biodegradable materials:

  • Recycled PVC: PVC is a well-known material in recycling streams. Indeed, it can be recycled multiple times without its original properties being degraded.

  • Kraft Liner 200 gsm: This material, produced from kraft wood pulp, is naturally robust and biodegradable. The Kraft liner material is certified by FSC® (certificate no.FR065239/2), sourced from forests with sustainable and controlled management.

  • Polypropylene and ETL additive (Ecoplastics Technology Limited): ETL is an organic additive that, when added to a plastic material helps with its decomposition. Here, coupled with polypropylene, it allows the product to disintegrate through a process that uses biomethanization. Initially, the badge holder material allows the formation of a biofilm around the product, which promotes the colonization of microorganisms. This enables the polymer chains of the material to decompose and the organisms to consume the plastic material. Thanks to this process, ETL is accepted by regular recycling systems and can also be disposed of in a standard waste bin.

  • Biodegradable and compostable PLA (Polylactic Acid): These materials are entirely biodegradable and industrially compostable. The decomposition time of the material depends mainly on the environment in which it is placed. To meet the EN13432 standard, the material must achieve 90% biodegradation within 6 months. This process ensures a 100% biodegradable badge holder.

  • Frosted Polycarbonate or UV-resistant: These recyclable materials provide optimal badge protection, aesthetics, and a pleasant touch.

  • Crystal Polystyrene: 100% recyclable material.

  • 100% organic. Cereal base: corn and wheat: This material is 100% biodegradable (certified EN14995 standard) and manufactured in France. The decomposition time of the material depends mainly on the environment in which it is placed. It occurs in less than 12 weeks, in an industrial compost, with a temperature between 60 and 80°C.

Focus on the cardboard badge holder
