Wednesday 22nd April was World Earth Day - a day for us all to consider the way in which we care for our environment, and for us, a pertinent opportunity to update our customers and partners on how we do our bit to contribute to sustainability.
Many of our products are used by schools and other public services; so when the government announced they were challenging public services to limit their use of plastic, and for schools to become plastic-free by 2022, we at Davilex Group decided to play our part by committing to improving eco-friendliness in our materials and packaging, and aim to eliminate all non-recyclable plastic and glitter from our product range by 2021.
Sustainability in our Brands
Our DESKit laminating pouches are essential for school resources and public service communications. For this reason, especially, we are determined to ensure that the public sector can rely on us to provide products made with recyclable materials.
We take pride in knowing our DESKit customers are able to dispose of their laminated presentations, as easily as the rest of their recyclable plastics. Furthermore, we have an obligation as a UK business to do what we can to upkeep with government guidelines, as well as preserve our environment.

Our Brackit top-selling dust protection range consists of disposable biodegradable dust sheets, and recyclable polythene sheets, which can be disposed of responsibly along with all the other plastic recyclables at the end of a project.
By providing products that are both environmentally sustainable and easy to dispose of, we intend to improve time-efficiency for builders and installers when handling their project waste, in addition to ensuring our materials aren’t contributing to landfill.
We are also planning to develop all our packaging from plastic packs to strong card dispensers, to add a reusability element to our packaging.

We consistently work with our suppliers to ensure our Edukit range complies with EN71 product safety standards; by doing so, we can assure our customers that none of our products contain any potentially harmful chemicals.
By 2021, we aim for our Edukit products, in particular, to have all non-recyclable plastic and glitter removed from its range, as we continue to develop the sustainability of all our brands.
