Our Eco Badges Commitment

From the beginning 20 years ago, our badge production has been environmentally responsible. All our name badges are made with a paper core and a durable polyester lamination, not PVC – in a process that is unique to Ubiqus. Now we’ve expanded our environmental programme to the full life cycle of our badges: send them back after your event and we’ll recycle them.

For Ubiqus, Eco Badges aren’t an optional extra. All our pre-printed event badges are, by definition, Eco Badges. If you’d like to see them for yourself, request a complimentary sample badge.

  • Environmentally responsible manufacturing

Most name badges on the market are made of PVC. We’ve never used PVC in our pre-printed badges, and we never will. Instead, we use paper and polyester. Why is this important? This gets a bit technical, but stay with us: because PVC (polyvinyl chloride), when incinerated, gives off a suffocating gas (HCl) that combines with water in the air to produce hydrochloric acid – a strong and highly corrosive acid.

Our pre-printed name badges – guaranteed to be free of PVC – can be incinerated without any such risk. The same environmental standards apply across our whole range of name badges.

Reusable badges are another environmentally attractive option.

  • Return your used badges

In 2008 we took the next step. Now all our clients can simply return their used badges to us for recycling. Send badges to:

Ubiqus Ireland
3rd Floor
Broad Street Centre
Waterford
IRELAND

Any fasteners that can be reused are reclaimed to serve again. Those parts that can’t be reused are incinerated safely and cleanly – producing useful electricity instead of taking space in landfill.

We worked hard to find a recycling partner to meet our standards. Our choice is a facility that received its ISO 14001 certification in 2001 – ensuring that it adheres to the highest standards regarding emissions. The plant serves several local communities and produces electricity which is fed back to the grid.
