Flag, flagpole and display manufacturer Harrison Flagpoles has launched a new Harrison Eco range of products and services for housebuilders.
The Newton Aycliffe-based manufacturer’s ‘eco-friendly’ range comprises a suite of products, including the Eco Flag, Eco Banner, Eco Heras Mesh, Eco Display Fabric and Bravura Display Range.
Eco Flag uses 100 per cent recycled material made from recycled plastic waste including single-use PET plastic bottles. On average there are 29 recycled plastic bottles in every Eco Flag the business prints. All Harrison Eco products are free from PVC and are fully recyclable.
Anthony Leonard, Sales and Marketing Director at Harrison Flagpoles, said: “Sustainability is a crucial consideration for housebuilders, with many proactively implementing policies to reduce their impact on the environment.
“Improving the sustainability of the products they specify and procure is one of the ways housebuilders can achieve this. That is why we have created an extensive range of eco-friendly products, which allow housebuilders to move away from products made from virgin polyester and PVC to more sustainable alternatives.
“The launch of our Harrison Eco range is a key part of our sustainable growth strategy and we’re looking forward to announcing more details on how we’ll be further enhancing the sustainability of our operations soon.”
In addition to the new range, the business has launched a fabric upcycling scheme. The scheme enables clients to return unused flags to the business, which upcycles the material to create new products such as shopping bags, tote bags and even dog toys, which the business donates to dog re-homing charity FLOOF.
