• Making markers from old plastic, edding launch the EcoLine range

        • Marker pen experts edding have launched a very green new product range to incorporate post-consumer plastics, reduce its consumption of new materials and save up to 83 tones in CO2 emissions every year.

          As a result of on-going research and development, post-consumer plastics from both domestic and industrial sources can now make up to 83 percent of the plastic needed to make the permanent, whiteboard and flipchart markers in the new range. This means that, adding other recycled material used, the figure jumps to 90 percent.

          Further expanding their mission to be green, edding use no plastic in their packaging, opting for cardboard instead so customers can recycle with ease. All pens are refillable so waste can be reduced even further and length of life is increased with their cap-off ink solution for pens left without their lids.

          New editions have been launched in the EcoLine range this month including the 1 mm fine-tipped permanent marker, the edding 25 and other regulars have evolved to include post-consumer plastics too.
