We pioneered environmentally friendly flag solutions with our launch of Harrison Eco™ in 2018. Today our expanded range includes durable materials for flags, feather flags and printed displays.
Our revolutionary material is made from recycled plastic items, including single-use PET plastic bottles and industrial polyester waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill. The plastic is processed into a yarn which is then formed into our material, Harrison Eco™, that can be used as a sustainable option for many of our print products including flags and feather flags. Harrison Eco™ has the same durability, strength and versatility of it’s knitted polyester equivalent, but with a much lower environmental impact, creating 75% less CO₂ emissions than virgin polyester in production. It also meets the requirements for the OEKO-TEX® 100 standards and is free from toxic elements.
Harrison Eco™ banner material is made from recycled plastic items, including single-use PET bottles and it has a much more environmentally-friendly production process compared to PVC, whilst offering the same excellent colour quality and overall durability. This eco alternative is lighter than many traditional PVC products, making for easier transportation, placement, and storage, and it is also stain-resistant, washable, and fire-resistant.
Harrison Eco™ Display material is used for backdrops and teamed with our Bravura display range for sustainable display solution. Harrison Eco™ display material is made from recycled plastic waste, including single-use plastic bottles, that would otherwise end up in landfill. It is 100% recyclable and can be handed back to us for further recycling or upcycling once you’re finished with it as part of our fabric upcycling scheme.
As a proud British manufacturer, all of our glassfibre poles are made at our premises in county Durham. We are committed to our promise of protecting our planet and have recently launched the UK’s first flagpole recycling service, which means that we now recycle any glassfibre waste produced in the manufacturing of our poles and keep landfill waste to a minimum. We currently recycle over one tonne of glassfibre waste every month.
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 https://www.fortheloveofourfrenchies.net/advantage of this scheme.
