Grand format printing company Mesh Direct has launched its new Eco Banner Mesh to the Australian market. The new mesh is fully recyclable and has less of an impact on the environment during its manufacturing process.
Mesh Direct said this is a huge win for the construction industry and the environment as for a long time, there was no way around sending hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste to landfill each year.
Traditional banner mesh contains a material called Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), making it notoriously difficult, if not impossible to recycle. PVC also contributes an abundance of toxic substances to the environment.
However, Mesh Direct’s new Eco Mesh is made using water-based acrylic which means the material can be widely recycled and it’s less harmful.
“We are thrilled to bring this product, the first of its kind (that we know about) to our customers and the Australian market. Our Eco Banner Mesh is one of many steps we are taking in the right direction for the environment, along with becoming 100 per cent carbon neutral and several other green initiatives,” Mesh Direct director Andrew Doenicke said.
Mesh Direct said it endeavours to continue innovating eco-signage solutions and leading the way in the market.
“The environment is a priority. It’s something each one of us at Mesh Direct want to put at the forefront of what we do. Our Green Initiative launched in 2019, focusing on creating signage from recycled materials. We are now ready to take that a step further with our carbon neutral initiative, which we hope will become a norm in the signage industry Australia-wide,” Doenicke said.
“The signage industry still has a long way to go in terms of the environment. But we have been excited to share this good news story and look forward to watching the industry evolve as Mesh Direct continues to lead the way to a greener future.”
