DiskBank have been offering recycled CD and DVD packaging for almost a decade now. Soy inks, vegetable inks and recycled paper stocks have been the norm for many years now and should always be offered as an option when one produces their own CD or DVD sets.
DiskBank has recently introduced the eco-friendly slimdisc that is already popular among users.
Made from the same pure polycarbonates used for all of their discs, slimdiscs are half the thickness of standard DVDs and use around 50-60% of the materials.
The weight is also reduced by around 40% leading to a massive drop in air freight costs, huge energy savings and an environmental tick.
There isn't much the lightweight slimdisc can't do, however the company recommends that it be used as a marketing product rather than a replacement for the standard DVD.
A warning must be printed on all slimdiscs explaining that the disc may not play in all drives. Besides, the standard DVD logo cannot be placed on any related packaging or disc printing.
That said, the slimdisc is an eye-catching alternative to the standard DVD and the highly flexible disc definitely carries the ‘wow’ factor. Additionally, the slimdisc is available at a lower price.
