Safety signs are an important legal requirement for premises of all kinds. However, most safety signs are made of virgin plastic or PVC based materials and will last for hundreds if not thousands of years, despite many signs only needing to be used on a temporary or short term basis. A typical premises may have hundreds of safety signs that will eventually be replaced or disposed of - this could represent a significant amount of plastic entering landfill, not to mention the millions of plastic signs produced to meet demand. We have developed a range of best-selling safety signs using alternative eco-friendly self-adhesive and rigid materials that are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. These new materials are free from virgin plastics and are PVC free yet offer comparable quality and durability to typical sign materials.

Our EcoCentric Ratings
EcoCentric gives ratings on each of our products that show at a glance their eco-credentials and how they compare to ‘traditional’ products that could be used for the same tasks or purposes.
Our ratings are easily broken down into 4 simple categories:
- A score out of 5 which indicates the performance of the product in comparison to ‘traditional’ or not specifically eco-friendly products in that area. This is to show if there’s any trade-off in efficacy in order to achieve a more environmentally friendly product.
- A score out of 5 to indicate just how ‘eco-friendly’ a product is. This score will take into account everything from environmental impact of production and usage to disposal. A higher score here reflects a low impact on the environment at all stages, for example a product made from recycled materials that doesn’t have any negative impact during use and can then be fully recycled would achieve a score of 5. Sustainability of raw materials will be taken into account for products that aren’t made from recycled materials.
- Our opinion on the product. This part of the rating comes direct from us and reflects how we feel about using the product as a replacement for typical options, taking into account the previous two points. This section could be considered a round-up and a recommendation based on the scores the product has achieved and we hope it will help you to make the choice to place your order.
- Colour coded icons that clearly show why the product is considered eco-friendly, showing the extent of the green credentials where applicable, for example showing if the product is made from sustainable raw materials, partially or fully recycled material or from virgin material. The icons will offer a quick and easy way to see if the product is as environmentally friendly as you require.
