We were the first UK flag supplier to offer environmentally friendly flag material and outdoor branding products. Working with a leading fabric manufacturer we have developed an environmentally friendly alternative to knitted polyester for our flags and feather flags.
This revolutionary material is made from recycled plastic items, such as single use PET plastic bottles, and industrial polyester waste. The waste is melted down into chips, then spun into yarn that is knitted to form a material. Enviroflag has the same durability, strength and versatility of it’s knitted polyester equivalent, but with a much lower environmental impact.
Unlike standard knitted polyester, that is used in the manufacture of most printed flags, Enviroflag doesn’t require new petroleum for its creation. Therefore lowering the demand for petroleum extraction and reducing it’s overall carbon footprint. Producing the Enviroflag material is also better for the climate, creating 75% less CO₂ emissions than virgin polyester. It also meets the requirements for the OEKO-TEX® 100 standards and is free from toxic elements.
We are proud to be the first UK supplier to offer a Fabric Upcycling Scheme. Each year approximately 850,000 tonnes of textiles ends up in landfill. Our aim is that 100% of the fabric we print is recycled or upcycled. We ask that any used flags are returned to us so we can turn them back into useful items and give them a new lease of life. They are transformed into shopping bags, sports bags and tote bags that are ideal to purchase for giveaways. We also produce dog toys that are donated to our local dog re-homing charity FLOOF and are available to purchase with any order for your pooch at home. Ask us how you can take advantage of this scheme.
Make the environmentally friendly choice on any of our Home Nations, World, County, Pride or feather flags and select Enviroflag.
