Recycle Week 2020

From the 21st to 28th September businesses and organisations across the nation  will be getting behind the annual Recycle Week campaign, operated by environmental charity WRAP.

Who is WRAP?

WRAP stands for Waste, Resources Action Programme which exists to work with The Government, businesses and communities to accelerate a move to sustainability, by helping them reduce waste, develop sustainable products and use resources in an efficient way.

Why is it important?

The work of WRAP and its national campaign Recycle Week is growing year on year. It’s profile elevated by the involvement of many household names and well-known consumer brands. As a result, it’s facilitating real change across our nation that will  benefit our nation for generations to come.

What’s this year’s campaign about?

As a nation, we’ve experienced unprecedented times with a lot of challenges. So, quite rightly, the theme this year is about saying thank you for continuing to recycle and care for our planet even amidst this chaos.  ‘This Recycle Week, we want to thank each and every one of you. For pulling together whilst staying apart. And continuing to recycle. No matter what life throws in the way. Protecting our nation and our planet for the future. Together.’

We believe this is a fitting campaign theme, with minimal pressure for people to make any drastic changes. It’s simply saying keep doing what you’re doing.

Why are we getting involved?

By participating in Recycle Week 2020 we’re hoping to demonstrate to other businesses new ways in which to operate more sustainably. Across the Harrison Group, we now offer a range of products made from recycled waste, helping tackle the problem of  textile and plastic plastic waste and reducing the overall carbon footprint these products produce. We’re hoping more of our customers will eventually switch to our green products or even join our flag upcycling scheme, so that together we can reduce  waste and environmental damage.

We are  aware that the print industry and the printing of flags  contributes to a very real waste problem. Flags, scrim, branding products all have a limited shelf life and once disposed of, contribute to further textile and plastic waste.  We believe everyone has their part to play in protecting our planet. Even small changes can have a large impact, collectively. We are, and have been for several years, fully committed to doing our part in reducing our environmental impact and we will continue to do so.
