Sustainability in retail is a hot topic. So many brands and retailers have been changing the way in which they communicate with their customers in store by using more environmentally friendly materials for POS and P-O-P production.

There are many sustainable alternatives to otherwise considered environmentally impactful materials, but how do you know which one is best and which one to choose?

Plastic is a material that is widely considered bad for the environment. The truth is, there are many types of plastics, some of which are more straightforward to recycle than others. The same can be said for card materials that are coated and require chemicals to remove it prior to recycling.
