Is your custom poly tape environmentally friendly?
There are two common materials used in tape manufacturing, polypropylene (PP) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
Polypropylene (PP) is one of the most neutral plastics, and contains only two elements: hydrogen (H) and carbon (C). By comparison, Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) contains about 30% nasty Chlorine (Cl) in its basic structure.
We've chosen to offer PP tape only, because it’s much less harmful to the environment. PP tape is also recyclable - check with your local council to confirm whether it can be placed in your regular recycle bin, or alternatively recycle through a service like Redcycle.
