Leaders Romans Group is to use only fully recycled material to create its sales and lettings boards across all of its brands.
It’s using fully recycled correx – lightweight, weatherproof and corrugated polypropylene – for its marketing material made by Kremer Signs.
“Most of us are fully aware of the devastating effects that both climate change and plastic waste are having on our environment, so sourcing an eco-friendly solution for the property boards we use is extremely important to us – and we appreciate that this passion is equally as important to our customers” says Kiersty Sims, LRG’s marketing director.
“This business investment plays a small part in the bigger goal of the whole LRG company becoming carbon neutral. While all new boards across the group will be recycled and recyclable, we will of course ensure all our current boards fulfil their jobs until it comes to us recycling them.”
Kremer’s sales and marketing director Gary Gosney adds: “The boards themselves are made from recycled plastic materials such as old boards, packaging, and cartons, but when the board comes to end of life, they can then be recycled again to avoid landfill.
“This green cycle is a game-changer for the industry and something we are very proud to be a part of. Alongside this, the timber that is used for the posts is sourced from FSC-approved renewable forests in Sweden, and the inks used are water-based, with no toxic chemicals in their makeup, meaning that we really can offer a total green solution for LRG’s boards.”
This will ensure the boards are recycled and disposed of responsibly after use and reinforces the drive to source products sustainably, says Gosney.
