As Green As Possible

In times of plastic waste and microplastics that invade the planet's ecosystem, we believe it is our duty as a company but also as human beings to produce your vinyl in an environmentally friendly way. We are currently the greenest vinyl pressing plant on this planet.

Our main goal is (and will always be) to press your records "As Green As Possible".
We are very innovative and leading in the field of sustainable pressing of ECO-vinyl and do this for the best possible price without making concessions to the quality of the product. In this way we hope to motivate and interest both artists and labels to press vinyl without feeling guilty about environmental pollution and to minimize their ecological footprint.

All our employees are strongly committed to our ECO policy and its expansion, as a team we believe we can set things in motion within our industry and we hope to inspire other companies to develop products together with us for a better future.

What are we doing so far?

Below is a list of our ecological solutions for a better and more sustainable existence of the vinyl sector.

      • Our Granulate (the grains which we melt to make a vinyl record of) is based upon Calcium Zinc stabilizers instead of the classic heavy metals stabilizers, which are highly intoxicating.
     
      • All our machines are powered by green electricity, green gas and biomass all supplied by local suppliers. The biomass used is pruning waste from the province of Friesland, so no tree is specifically cut for this.
     
      • We work with a new infrastructure that is very energy efficient and meets current energy standards.
     
      • Our factory is almost 100% circular in terms of waste, recycling and energy.
     
      • We remove the labels from incorrectly pressed records and turn the remaining vinyl part into recycled granulate, which does not harm the sound quality.
     
      • As standard we use environmentally friendly FSC-certified Tullis Russell labels and thick 300 GSM FSC-certified cardboard covers.
     
      • The ink we are using on our products and packing is ECO friendly & vegan.
     
      • As a standard, our orders are shipped in eco-friendly heavy duty FSC certified cardboard boxes and eco friendly paper adhesive tape.
     
      • The larger shipments are sent on a cardboard pallet that is 100% recyclable with BIO wrapping/shrink made from 50% sugar cane.
     
      • We are recycling all our useless cardboard and use this for packaging and transporting purposes.
     
      • As a standard, we ship our packages 100% carbon neutral worldwide.
     
      • We team up with companies who use empty spaces on trucks for sharing logistics.
     
      • Our website and project management software are located on servers that run on green energy.
